  • You can subscribe to the Calendar Feed using Outlook 2013 on your desktop. The calendar feed will contain events and assignments from all of your Canvas calendars. Once you have subscribed to the calendar feed, you can remove the calendar feed at any time in Outlook by opening the Tools menu, clicking Account Settings, and selecting the Internet Calendars tab.

    If you are using an earlier version of Outlook, these steps may differ.


    • All future events, and past events within 30 days, are included when exporting a Canvas calendar to Outlook.
    • Outlook periodically updates but may take up to 24 hours to sync with the Canvas Calendar. Canvas update may not be immediately visible in Outlook.
    • If your institution/organization uses a Microsoft Exchange Server account, you can also subscribe to the calendar feed using the Outlook Web App in Exchange Server. This allows you to access your Outlook calendar online if you are away from your desktop. Please contact your IT administrator at your organization/institution for more information.

  • You can add media to your assignment, either as part of a text entry, or as your entire submission.

    Any attachments added as part of a graded assignment submission are also copied to your user files but are not counted against your user quota. However, once the file has been uploaded as a submission, you cannot delete the file. Files are stored in the Submissions folder.

    To learn more about available options for using media files in Canvas, view the Canvas Media Comparison PDF.


    • Canvas will not accept media uploads larger than 500 MB.
    • Your instructor will decide what type of submissions are allowed. One or both of these options may not be available.

  • 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.

  • 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 Analyser?

    Analytics evaluate individual components of a course and evaluate student performance. Analytics takes a three-pronged approach to creating substantive data for Canvas users.

    • Justification focuses on system reports and how the system is being used.
    • Intervention looks to predict at-risk students and how to meet their needs.
    • Learning focuses on learning outcomes, the effectiveness of the teaching style, and the division of time between students achieving competence and those falling behind.

    Hva er Rubrikker?

    Rubrics are a way to set up custom or Outcome-based assessment criteria for scoring.

    A Rubric is an assessment tool for communicating expectations of quality. Rubrics are typically comprised of rows and columns. Rows are used to define the various criteria being used to assess an assignment. Columns are used to define levels of performance for each criterion.
