Canvas Hands-on Session: The New VeriCite

Friday, January 6, 1-2 p.m.

 

Beginning Winter 2017 VeriCite will be embedded in SpeedGrader. So, no more setting up two assignments or using the VeriCite External Tool and not having SpeedGrader for document markup!

The new interface is great, and what many instructors have requested. In this session, instructors will learn how to transition from the external tool VeriCite to the use of VeriCite in SpeedGrader.
