CTL Spring 2017 Semester Midway Luncheon

We want to thank all the adjuncts who attended the Spring 2017 Semester Midway Luncheon on March 10th. The CTL, along with EO&L and Adjunct Faculty Representatives, will continue to support PVCC adjuncts with these events each semester.

Now, mark your calendar for the next event, which is the end of the semester Adjunct Appreciation Luncheon. This event will take place on Friday, May 12, 2017 from 11:30am to 1:00pm. It is an opportunity to celebrate your success and share how much we value your role here at the college.





Tech Tips

When you create a Google spreadsheet, you may want to have certain information displayed on your screen at all times. For example, you may want to have header information “Name” constantly displayed even when you scroll down the page. To do this you’ll need to “Freeze” the row or column you want to always have on display. Just click “View -> Freeze,” then select the number of rows or columns you want to freeze. If you select a cell before clicking “View,” then you’ll get the option to freeze every row or column up to that cell.


Canvas Corner

Did you know... that you can hide “Files” (and other menu items) from the Canvas course navigation menu?
  • Go to a Canvas course and click on the “Settings” menu.
  • Select the “Navigation” tab.
  • Click and hold the “Files” link and drag it to the bottom of the page.
  • Click “Save”
Use the same process for other menu items you are not using.
Why: “Files” is the course storage area and is confusing for students. Hiding it also prevents students from seeing files you don’t want them to see.
