Are you ready for 2018?

New and improved Canvas tools for you 

NameCoach - this new tool allows Canvas users to voice-record their names so that instructors and classmates can hear the name and say it right. The recording will appear in all of their Canvas course sites, unless instructors disable the menu link. Recording one’s name is entirely optional, and users can re-record at any time. Look for NameCoach in the Canvas course menu, and in your user profile. Copy/paste this url in your browser for instructions:
Rubrics – now support a point range in addition to discrete point value ranks. And you can duplicate criteria when creating a rubric to ease your workload.
Improved media editing tools coming soon – A new, more accessible media editor will be launched in Canvas on January 14th. This new interface makes it easy to clip and trim your Kaltura videos, and also integrates the In-Video Quizzing functionality, all in one destination. The editing tools are compatible with Android and iOS mobile devices.

You can still access the tools on your video’s Edit page by clicking on the Launch Editor button .

More details on the media editor coming soon. 

Have a lovely holiday!
