Tech Tips

Roster Picture ID
Faculty can access their class roster which includes student pictures.  If the student does not have a picture ID in the class roster it means they have not obtained a Student ID yet. The Roster Picture ID site has the ability to download the roster into an Excel spreadsheet. Click the CSV icon and the roster will download into an Excel file. By clicking on the “seating chart” icon you will be able to view, modify, or print a Seating Chart.  Click here to go to the Roster Picture ID site.

Did you know… 
Canvas introduced a New Conversations tool recently. The Conversations redesign was introduced to make it easier for students and instructors to communicate with each other. Some of the new features include a streamlined look, similar to the Discussions interface that better aligns with the rest of Canvas, a new interface for composing messages, and the ability to filter your messages by course. One highly sought after new feature in New Conversations is the ability to select multiple messages. Another requested feature was also implemented; email notifications will now show in the subject line within the email.
