This checklist provides faculty timely reminders of routine Canvas course tasks before and after each term.
Course sites are created around 8 weeks prior to the term. If you would like to start working on your course prior to that time, contact CDLI to request a prep space.
Can’t find next quarter’s course? Your Canvas Dashboard is now organized with "Published Courses" listed first, and "Unpublished Courses" listed below. You can also customize your course list to make specific courses easier to find.
Schedule your Zoom meetings for your class and office hours using the Zoom interface in Canvas. Scheduling your class Zoom meetings through the Canvas interface will ensure that all the Zoom meetings for that class will appear in the Zoom link in Canvas course navigation. Use this guide for step-by-step instructions.
If your meetings will be the same day(s) and time each week, we suggest using the Recurring meeting function when setting up your Zoom meetings. Set up one meeting and then configuring that meeting to recur weekly on the same days (see below).
(Also remember to check Record the meeting automatically in the cloud so your meetings will be archived for students who might be sick or have connectivity problems that day.)
Note: Courses "conclude" and become read-only for students on the last day to dispute grades (3 weeks into the following term & 3 weeks into the Fall term for Spring courses).
Note: Canvas courses and student records are not deleted from the system. Please follow the steps below if you’d like to download course data to your Seattle University OneDrive storage space.
