February Workshops You'll Love

Blackboard Collaborate Ultra: This tool for synchronous communication is kind of like a blend between Skype and Power Point, but more. You can present to students live with interaction, share your desktop, even record. Now with Ultra, there is no java to worry about. Come into the ETC to learn more on February 23rd and 24th at noon.

AccessAbility: Join us for a face-to-face session of the AccessAbility training and earn your badge on February 17th from 3:00-4:30 in the ETC.

How To Include Video From Films On Demand In Your Course


How To Set Up Your Gradebook in Canvas

New in Canvas + Canvas Tips

New Course - A heartfelt congratulations goes out to Matt Goff who completed development of the OPABS Business course. Kudos to Gary Gray for his thoughtful QM review.

Navigate Canvas with Ease - You can right-click just about anything in Canvas and open it in a new tab. This makes navigating between the course, Speedgrader, or Calendar much faster and easier.

The "Undelete Key" - Yep, Canvas actually has one...(mostly). You can view and restore the last 25 deleted items in your course. In the URL bar of your browser add the word 'undelete' right after your course ID like this: //umpqua.instructure.com/courses/123456/undelete. Note that this function is not fully supported yet and and doesn't work with content pages or student submissions, but it's so good to know it's there!

Badge o' the Month: Films on Demand

Films on Demand (FOD) is a collection of thousands of videos we now have access to thanks to the Oregon Community College Distance Learning Association (OCCDLA). You can use them in your face-to-face classes or put them in your Canvas shells with only a few clicks. Start at the FOD tab on the library webpage: www.umpqua.edu/library. Let us know when you've added an FOD film to your Canvas shell and we'll add an FOD badge to your profile.
