Last Call: Canvas Migration Workshop
Instructors often assign collaborative group projects to help students develop the leadership, management and interpersonal skills they will need to be successful in today’s workplaces. To help instructors and students, Canvas offers group assignment options as well as group spaces for collaboration, management and communication. When assigning group projects, instructors can use Canvas’ Assignments, online Discussions and Collaborations (of which Google Docs is an option). In addition to these tools for specific assigned tasks, students can work and share together in their own Canvas group workspace, which is created automatically when a group is formed. In this session, we will walk through organizing Google Docs in your Drive and construction of a group assignment using Google Docs and Google Sheets.
