At the end of the semester, please complete the following steps in each of your Canvas courses.
If you’re looking for next semester’s Canvas courses, scheduled classes will be automatically created in Canvas 50 days before the official class start date.
Please set an End date on your Canvas courses’ Course Details page (Settings > Course Details) if you configured a course Start date.
This step will “conclude” your Canvas courses at the correct time and makes Canvas easier to navigate for students. This blog post about Canvas Course Participation Settings explains how to set dates for course participation.
If you’re using graded assignnments in Canvas, review your gradebook to make sure all grades are assigned, calculated correctly, and align with the UW-Superior grading scheme:
When you’re ready, please submit final grades in eHive. Export your gradebook if you want to download and backup a CSV file of your final grades outside of Canvas.
Do any of your students need to continue working in your Canvas course? For example, are any students taking an Incomplete grade, and still need to complete coursework?
Instructors can grant specific enrolled students longer access to a Canvas course by using the Extend Student Access tool. This tool is available on the top right of the course homepage, or at the bottom when viewing Canvas in a small browser window.
Visit this page for more information about using the Extend Student Access tool in your Canvas course.
Unplayed Kaltura My Media items (audio and video) are automatically deactivated after two years and completely deleted after four years. Now a good time to view any of your course media that needs to be saved for upcoming terms. We recommend downloading and backing up any items that won’t be played at least once a year.
To count as played, any user must have played that item for at least 10 seconds.
Use the Export Course Content tool in Settings to save an export of your course outside of Canvas. You can backup this file for your records or to use when setting up future courses.
