What course tools can faculty use in Canvas?

Every Canvas course at Wayne State University contains a Course Tools link located in the course navigation menu. These tools are available to the primary instructor of record in the course. 

Course Tools contains custom Canvas functions developed by Computing & Information Technology that simplify administrative tasks, such as:

  • Crosslisting courses/course sections into one Canvas course shell
  • Aggregating Discussion Board posts for ease of grading
  • Scheduling Echo360 lecture recordings for both Classroom and Universal Capture
  • Restoring deleted content items
