What's New in Canvas?

  • Modules in a course site can now be copied!  There is one exception. If a module contains a Canvas quiz, it can't be copied.  The workaround is to remove the quiz from the module (don't delete the quiz), copy the module, then add the quiz back to the module. To copy the module, open the Settings menu, loaced to the far right of the Module name.  Select Duplicate.  If Duplicate is not an option, there is most likely a quiz in the module.  The new module will appear directly below the copied module, items will be unpublished, and have the word Copy added to the end of the module name.

The Canvas course management system has been used at the UO since 2015. Many UO courses are using it to provide online course materials. Uses range from providing the syllabus, to course readings, to grade information, to online class discussion and homework submission, to in several cases a fully online class. Prior to Canvas, the UO Libraries provided Blackboard access and support from 1999-2015.
