The easiest way to determine whether or not students can access an assignment is by the Publish Status. Although, this is generally accurate, there are additional settings that instructors can change to make the assignment not accessible such as availability dates.
Instructors can use links in their courses to link to external content (YouTube video, publisher content, etc). It's a good idea to check and make sure that all of the links provided in the course work properly. To do this, Instructors can use the Link Validator Tool.
Course Question Banks can be converted to user Item Banks and used in the New Quiz Format. Using the New Quiz Format allows users to share Item banks between users, make edits to bank questions that will update Quiz questions to reflect the edits and Item banks are tied to the user so they can be used in any course. Canvas does plan on releasing it's own conversion tool in the future, however in the meantime users will need to manually convert older Question Banks into Newer Item banks.
Instructors can copy/import their course content from prior semesters. Using the Canvas Course Import Tool, instructors can choose all content or select specific content from a prior course that they taught and import into their new course.
Instructors can use a PDF that has been converted into a JPEG image as a Canvas Quiz in the New Quiz format via Stimulus Questions (note this process is best suited for single page documents).
Each semester instructors like to pull content into their new courses from prior semesters, often times the due and availability dates need to be adjusted to match the the current semester (i.e. you don't want your students to submit an assignment that was due last year). With the bulk edit feature; assignments, quizzes, tests, exams and discussions can all be adjusted from a single page.
Creating Assignment Groups allows you to organize the assignments in your course and create Weighed Grading if desired.
Towards the end of each semester, students are given the opportunity provide instructor and course feedback using EvaluationKIT. Instructors can view current and past Course Evaluations. Some Deans also request that their Administrative Assistant have access to Course Evaluations in order to help organize and process them. Course Evaluations are access from the User's Canvas account settings.
