CanvasShoutoutHSULead

What: April’s Canvas Shout-out
Who: April’s Canvas Shoutout goes to Heather McEntyre, Dean’s Assistant in the College of Fine Arts.
411: Heather interacts with the Canvas online course learning management system as both a Dean’s Assistant and a graduate student in Clinical Counseling and Marriage & Family. She has a unique perspective as both a student user and admin user which uniquely pivots her perspective. Heather offers these tips to successful adaptation and use of Canvas:

Heather’s Tips for fellow students: “Be patient!  Canvas is a user friendly program once you’ve learned the steps.  It took me a good 30 minutes to realize that I couldn’t upload a document using the attached paper clip icon we’re all so use to!.  However once I figured out I had to use drop box, I can now easily upload a document in seconds. If you don’t see a module you think should be on your dashboard, contact your professor.”

Heather’s Tips for faculty: “Make sure your courses are published. Once your course is published, make sure you publish your modules.  Also, use the chat help function or call the helpline.  Canvas support is fantastic!”

Congratulations, Heather! We love learning from you!!
