    Hva er tester?

    Quizzes in Canvas are assignments that can be used to challenge student understanding and assess comprehension of course material. The quiz tool is used to create and administer online quizzes and surveys. Quizzes can also be used to conduct and moderate exams and assessments, both graded and ungraded.

    Canvas has four different types of quizzes:

    • A graded quiz is the most common quiz and rewards students points based on their quiz responses.
    • A practice quiz is a learning tool to see how well users understand course material without providing a grade.
    • A graded survey rewards students with points for completing a survey but grading is not based on right or wrong answers.
    • An ungraded survey obtains opinions or other information without providing a grade.

    Hva er Sider?

    Pages store content and educational resources that are part of a course or group but don’t necessarily belong in an assignment. Pages can include text, video, and links to files and other course or group content. Pages can also be linked to other pages. They can also be used as a collaboration tool for course or group wikis where only specific users can have access. Canvas keeps the entire history of the page to account for changes over time.

    Hva er moduler?

    Modules allow instructors to organize content to help control the flow of the course.

    Modules are used to organize course content by weeks, units, or a different organizational structure. Modules essentially create a one-directional linear flow of what students should do in a course.

    Each module can contain files, discussions, assignments, quizzes, and other learning materials. Module items can be added to the course from existing content or new content shells within the modules. Course content can be added to multiple modules or iterated several times throughout an individual module. Modules can be easily organized using the drag and drop feature. Elements within the modules can also be reorganized by dragging and dropping.

    Note: Keyboard shortcuts can be used to navigate the Modules page. Press the comma key and a pop-up window with keyboard shortcuts will appear for keyboard navigation.

    Hva er grupper?

    Groups are a small version of a course and used as a collaborative tool where students can work together on group projects and assignments.

  • Grades can serve as a communication tool between students and instructors and allow instructors to track the progress of students.

    The Gradebook stores all information about student progress in the course, measuring both letter grades and course outcomes.

    Hva er Filer?

    Files can house course files, assignments, syllabi, readings, or other documents, as well as profile pictures and user-specific files. Instructors can lock folders and files so they can only be viewed by direct links or only unlock on a specific date.

    Files can be placed in Modules, Assignments, or Pages. Files and folders are put in alphabetical order and cannot be rearranged.

    Canvas users will find access to files (documents, images, media, etc.) in three different places:

    • Personal files, located in each user's profile (students, teachers, and TAs)—View a video about personal files
    • Course files, located in each course (students, teachers, and TAs unless files are locked by the teacher)—View a video about Course Files
    • Group files, located in each group (students and teachers who are enrolled in groups)

  • LTI provides a framework through which an LMS (Canvas) can send some verifiable information about a user to a third party. For LTI to work, the third party needs to provide a consumer key and shared secret that Canvas can use to generate a signature to verify the authenticity of the data sent. By default most user information is anonymized, but this can be changed when the configuration is first set up.

    External Apps can be configured on the account or course level.

    Hva er ePortfolioer?

    Because ePortfolios are tied to the user Profiles and not a specific course, users can build an unlimited number of ePortfolios in which to collect and document their educational projects, submissions, experiences, and other work products. Users can keep ePortfolios private or share with other students, instructors, and/or future employers.

    In Canvas, ePortfolios remain active as long as the user is in the institution’s SIS and maintains a school login. Canvas also allows users to export ePortfolios to a zip file. ePortfolios can be set to allow private or public access.

    Hva er Diskusjoner?

    Canvas provides an integrated system for class discussions, allowing both instructors and students to start and contribute to as many discussion topics as desired. Discussions allows for interactive communication between two or more people; users can participate in a conversation with an entire class or group.

    Discussions can also be created as an assignment for grading purposes (and seamlessly integrated with the Canvas Gradebook), or simply serve as a forum for topical and current events. Discussions can also be created within student groups.

    Discussion topics can be a focused or threaded discussion. Focused discussions are relatively short-lived interactions, while threaded discussions allow replies within replies and may last for a longer period of time.
