Canvas

Canvas Commons contains pre-made assignments, discussions, etc. that can be directly imported into your Canvas course shells. Search Canvas Commons using "Chad Raymond" for examples.

Ensure that all of your course shells in Canvas contain a syllabus and plan for teaching remotely. You are encouraged to post class assignments and include a discussion thread for students to pose questions about your remote learning plan. Student submissions can also be managed through Canvas.

Learn more: Canvas instructor guide.

Webex

As the Canvas “Conferences” tool allows for only 10 concurrent conferences across the University, WebEx is recommended for synchronous audio/video interaction with students. WebEx has been integrated into every Canvas course shell.

WebEx can be used to conduct synchronous learning sessions for virtual class interactions and hold online office hours. WebEx may also be used to record lectures for asynchronous learning by posting the recorded sessions to your Canvas course shell. If you plan on using large video files for your course(s), email the Technology Services Center at tsc@salve.edu to have your media uploaded and hosted on Microsoft Stream.

List the course(s) you would like to create a team for so it can be named appropriately. You will be the team “owner” and may add members and guests as needed.

Office 365

All University business should be conducted using your Salve Regina-provided Office 365 email account. In addition, OneDrive can be used to securely access and share files with your students using the Microsoft cloud.
