Use Canvas to teach Sync

Per the university Provost, instructors, unless granted an exception, are expected to teach immersion courses on-campus, and students have the option to attend on-campus or via Zoom. To accommodate this modality, the bulk of your course content should be available in a Canvas shell, which provides learners the flexibility to access learning materials wherever they are, whenever they need it. To get started with Canvas, we've gathered the following resources:  

Request a Canvas shell

If you don't have a Canvas shell, you may request one at any time using this link. Students will be automatically enrolled in the course when the Canvas shell is created. 

Collect assignments in Canvas

Instead of asking students to email their assignments to you, please consider building them and collecting them in Canvas.

Create quizzes/ tests in Canvas

We recommend instructors build their exams in Canvas as soon as possible. In Canvas, you may set due dates and availability dates, set exam time (ie 1.5 hours), build in DRC exceptions (ie give identified students double time), etc.  The beauty of using Canvas for exams is that they can be auto-graded and you can use remote proctoring tools. 

Use remote proctoring for Canvas quizzes/ tests

Respondus Monitor and Lockdown Browser is available as a cheating deterrent in all ASU courses. (RPNow is reserved for high-stakes exams for which Respondus is not sufficient; it is costly, so it requires approval from The College leadership.)

Email for assistance with Respondus or RPNow.

Record lecture videos and post to Canvas

Because many of your students will attend Sync classes remotely, instructors are encouraged to record lectures and make them available in Canvas, which supports the flipped classroom approach. (The other side of the flipped classroom is using Zoom to facilitate active learning activities, which you can find on a tab on the left.)

You can record your lectures lectures using your desktop webcam or using a mobile device in the comfort of your office or home, uploading them to MediaAmp or Youtube, and posting them to Canvas.
