Canvas Draft State Webinar
Apr 30 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 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.

Read about Draft State now at http://tinyurl.com/draftstate
We will use a Colorado Mountain College “Meet Me” phone conference line 1805 for our audio and we’ll use this link for our meeting’s visual/screensharing component: https://join.me/cmcinnovations
If you are not using a campus phone, or are not sure how to connect to a “Meet Me” line with your campus phone, please call the main CMC switchboard at 1-800-621-8559 or 970-945-8691 and ask the operator to connect you to extension 1805.
