Educational Technologies for Fall 2021 Courses

Posted in UIS News & Announcements  |  Tagged

Canvas Updates

The Canvas plug-in tool for integrating Google Apps is being discontinued, and we have installed Google Assignments in its place. Before adding Google Assignments to your course, please read our resource page on it to learn how this change will affect courses that were using Google Apps.

Check out the list of apps installed in Canvas! Do you want to use a tool that’s not on the list nor in the Canvas app center? Submit the Google form linked here and we’ll work with you to make it available.

Remember that Canvas cannot store all course lecture recordings. Please do not upload recordings into Canvas courses! Instead, use the Zoom Cloud or Panopto for all recorded sessions; you can then link to those recordings in Canvas. Zoom Cloud Recordings are automatically copied to Panopto, where we currently have unlimited storage space. Review this information on how to find and share your Zoom Cloud recordings in Panopto. You can also view details on recording Zoom meetings and managing/accessing Panopto recordings.

Main Campus Classroom Technology

Please note that over the last year Classroom Education Technology Services (CETS) has upgraded most classrooms on the Main Campus, and they are eager to help you learn the new technology. Someone from CETS can meet with you for one-on-one instruction in your classroom, ideally before the first day of class. Contact CETS via, call 202-687-7491, or visit the CETS open office hours on Zoom, from 8 am – 9 pm.
