Tech Tips

You probably look at Google Calendar every morning to see what's on your agenda, so why not get a weather forecast while you're at it?  Click the Calendar's Settings Gear and look for the option labeled "Show weather based on my location." Click on the Fahrenheit option -- or Celsius, if you prefer -- and make sure you've also set your location in the field above it.  Then click the Save button at the bottom of the page.  Once you refresh the Calendar, you'll see small weather icons at the top of each day.  You can hover over the icon to get more info, or click it to see even more detail.


Did you know?…  When you Drop or Withdraw a student from from your course, they will be removed from the associated Canvas course.  If an Incomplete is given, the student will remain in the Canvas course until a grade is given.  The change occurs once the system has had time to process this change in registration, typically one day.  Make sure you backup any data you need for that student prior to submitting the grade in SIS.
