Assignments and activities you create for your students should be submitted electronically to minimize close, personal contact. Canvas Assignments will be one of your primary tools for assigning and managing student work. The Assignments tool allows students to submit work (e.g., Word documents, PDFs, image and video files, websites) and can connect to external learning tools (e.g., NameCoach, Quick Check, Hypothes.is, and Kaltura Quizzing). All Assignments automatically appear in the Canvas grade book.
- Connect to module and course objectives.
- Situate relevance to students' lives/careers (i.e. answer the question, "Why are we doing this?").
- Provide a clear process/task list.
- Articulate expectations for deliverables.
