Canvas Draft State Webinar
Apr 16 @ 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Learn all about the new, number-one-requested feature in Canvas, coming to CMC’s Canvas system for the Summer 2014 semester: Draft State! Draft State allows an instructor to make Assignments, Quizzes, Modules, Pages, and Discussions invisible to students and exclude them from grade calculations. Draft State is designed specifically for instructors and affects nearly every part of Canvas when it’s activated for your course. We will address:

  • how to work with Draft state as an instructor with Modules, Pages, Assignments, Discussions, and Quizzes
  • setting up your course’s homepage with Draft State
  • what students will and won’t see as you work with Draft State 
  • We’ll finish with open Canvas Q&A.
