What is Canvas?

Canvas is a learning management system that helps teachers obtain and deliver content to students. The MBA Learning Center is delivered via Canvas. It includes comprehensive tools to run your classroom. It includes grading, assessment, assignments, discussions, calendars, and many other features that allow you to manage instruction all in one place.

To get an overview of Canvas, watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LP72Q-ySDNw

How do I build a course?

Are you ready to set up your first course in the Learning Center? It’s easy to customize courses to your liking with our ready-to-use modules! All it takes is a few quick steps.

Step 1: Create an Empty Course
Step 2: Name Your Course
Step 3: Enroll Yourself
Step 4: Choose Course Home Page
Step 5: Add LAPs to the Course

Here’s a video tutorial to guide you through it. More detailed written instructions can be found here. Here is an additional resource from Florida State University that describes the details of setting up a course: https://canvas.campus.fsu.edu/kb/article/781-how-to-build-your-new-canvas-course.

Not sure which LAPs to add to build your course? Consider starting with our preloaded, ready-to-use courses that coincide with our course guides. Click here to learn how to import these courses into your classes.



How do I add students to a course?

Once your course is ready to go, it’s time to add students to it! In your course, click the "People" option on the left side of the screen. Click the "+ People" button. Add your students by email address. Make sure you select the role of "Student." Click the "Next" button, and then the "Done" button.

This quick video explains this process. Written instructions can be found here.

Once you’ve added students, you’ll probably want to know how to view their accounts. This video from Canvas explains how to find and access student information:

If your students have previously been registered into a course on Canvas, you can create a course join link rather than adding every student into a newly created course. Select “Settings” from your course menu and then “More Options.” Select “Let students self-enroll by sharing with them a secret URL.” Copy and paste the join link and distribute to students.



How do I create course sections?

Creating course sections allows you to divide your course into sections and separate students. Through this feature, you can easily differentiate instruction by giving different assignments to different students. You can add sections by going to Settings on your course menu and the Sections tab. Type in the name of your section that you want to create and select the blue “+ Section” button. Then, click on the Section and click “Edit Section” to change any details about the Section.

To add students to sections, click on People from the course menu, and then the gear icon to the right of a student’s name. Click “Edit Sections” and enter the Section name.



How do I move courses over from previous semesters?

In the Learning Center, semesters end on June 30. Courses that were created in a previous semester will no longer appear on your dashboard. However, you are able to copy old courses into the current semester. Go into Settings in your course menu and select, “Copy this Course.” Select the term, give your course a name, code, start and end date.

Another way you can do this is by importing old course content into a new course. Open your new course, then go to Settings. Click on “Import Course Content” and then select “Copy a Canvas Course.” Select which course, and choose whether to import all content or select specific content. Adjust the events and due dates to your liking, and then select “Import.”

This video will demonstrate the Import process to you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSQmInvSoww



How do I add assignments to the Learning Center?

After you’ve got your courses set up and your students are ready to learn, it’s easy to add and customize your own assignments! You can upload documents, or you can create them within Canvas itself. This video will walk you through the process of uploading your own documents.

If you’re looking to go more in-depth into what you can do with assignments on Canvas, check out this video.



How do I publish a course or assignment?

You have to publish your course so that students can view it. Otherwise, only you, the teacher, will be able to access it. To learn how to publish a course, go here.

You can follow a similar process to publish individual pieces of a course, such as an assignment or quiz. Locate the assignment within the course, then click on the cloud icon on the right side of the assignment. This will change it from unpublished to published or vice versa.



How do I use the gradebook in the Learning Center?

After your students have completed assignments and assessments, you might be ready to use the gradebook. Canvas has its own Gradebook which can also be imported or exported into other systems. To learn how to use the Gradebook inside of the Learning Center, watch this video from Canvas. Written instructions can be found here.

Want to export the grades from your LC gradebook into a different system? Here’s how.



How do I use Speedgrader?

The Learning Center also has a great feature called Speedgrader, which allows you to quickly and interactively view, grade, and comment on Assignment submissions. Speedgrader allows you to make comments, corrections, annotations, and to use a rubric to automatically grade in seconds. Watch Canvas’ video tutorial to learn how to use Speedgrader.



How do I create my own quiz questions?

While the Learning Center includes a wide variety of ready-to-use assessments, you also have the ability to create your own.

To add an individual question, click the “Add New Question” button. Then, add a question title and select the question type from the drop-down menu.  Canvas allows for many types of questions, including multiple choice, true or false, and fill in the blank, among others.

After selecting a question type, assign a point value to the question. Then enter your question text, and add images, videos, or any other relevant content. Then, add possible answers in the fields provided. To add content other than text, click the edit icon to view the Rich Content Editor. Click Done when you’ve added an answer. Correct answers are indicated by green outlines, while incorrect answers are red. The correct answer is identified by a solid green arrow next to the answer, and the answer's feedback bubble is also green.

Click here for a quick video tutorial that goes into more detail about this process.



How do I add LAPs to Google Classroom and Schoology?

Does your school use a platform other than the Learning Center for classroom management? If so, don’t worry! It’s easy to integrate the Learning Center with other LMS such as Google Classroom, Blackboard, and Schoology! One way to do so is by downloading files from the Learning Center and uploading them to another platform.

Watch this video to learn how to move files from the MBA Learning Center to either Google Classroom or Schoology.

When the import is finished, the exam will be located under “Modules” in your course. It can also be found under “Quizzes.”

To publish the exam, click on it from the course home page. The button on the top of the page will either say "Published" or "Unpublished." Click the button to switch between the two.

To change the availability and other aspects of the exam, open the exam from the course home page. Then, click the "Edit" button in the top right corner of the page. From here, you can change the due dates, the allotted time, and other details.

How do I make instructor files available to students? 

Some of the files in a LAP module are sorted under the “Instructor” section, which means that students cannot see or access them. If you would like to make a file available for students, click on the gear next to that activity. Then, click “Move to…” Select the appropriate module, and then decide where in the module you want it to go (before or after another section). Click “Move.” For example, you can move Group Activity 2 so it is right before the Posttest. Then, find the file in its new location and click on the No symbol next to it. Change the file from Unpublished to Published. Now, students will be able to access the file from their accounts. 



How do I use the Calendar in Canvas?

To add a new question or question group, open an existing quiz, and click on “Edit.” Select the “Questions” tab. Scroll to the bottom of the quiz. To write your own new question, select “+ New Question.” Select the question type, and write the questions and answers. Assign a point value.

The next two options help you choose existing questions from the question banks. The Question Banks include thousands of test items aligned to performance indicators that you can add to existing quizzes. You can either add a group of questions based on performance indicator, or you can select individual questions. To select a group of questions, click “+ New Question Group” and then click “Link to a Question Bank.” Scroll to find the performance indicator you want, and then click “Select Bank.” Then, decide how many questions you want to include in the quiz, and assign a point value. The quiz will randomly pull questions from this performance indicator for the quiz.

To find individual questions, click on “Find Questions.” Then, scroll through to find the performance indicator(s) you want. Choose any or all of the available questions. When you have selected the questions you want, click “Add Questions.” You can then edit and rearrange the questions you selected. 



How do I archive old courses?

When you no longer want to use an existing course, you can archive it so that it does not appear on your dashboard. Archiving courses preserves the data rather than deleting it. To archive a course, open it and click on Settings on the side menu. Then, click on “Conclude this Course” on the right side menu. This will prevent you from modifying grades, but you will still be able to access the data. To find your archived courses, click on Courses on the side menu and then click on “All Courses.” Your archived courses can be found under “Past Enrollments.”
