Be on the lookout for changes to your most commonly used tools in Canvas this Winter. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Zoom: a change is coming to the Zoom integration with Canvas. We recommend faculty not create any new Zoom meetings directly through Canvas until after 12/22/18. 
    • If you find you need to modify or add a Zoom meeting in Canvas during this time, please consult with the Faculty Center staff by email, faculty.center@sonoma.edu or call 707-664-2659 to set up a consultation.
  • TurnItIn Plagiarism Framework: The Faculty Center recommends using the Plagiarism Framework method for a streamlined experience with your Canvas Speedgrader and Gradebook. 
    • Review the Turnitin Framework in Canvas Guide 
    • Compare Plagiarism Framework and the External Tool (LTI)  
  • Gradebook enhancements are now live!
    • We recommend turning on the new Gradebook by following these steps:
      • Settings > Feature Options > toggle on “New Gradebook” (the setting selection will save automatically)
  • HTML5 Media Recorder: Record videos within the Rich Content Editor which now uses an HTML5 recorder instead of Flash. Caption files may be directly uploaded or created via Amara. Record videos to introduce topics and assignments, or provide feedback in the SpeedGrader; This feature is also supported for students in the Submission Details page
