This video shares more ways you can leverage the benefits of the Canvas calendar.
Bonni Stachowiak describes the various elements of the Canvas calendar and how she sets up her class calendars.
Bonni takes inspiration from Alicia Jackson in religion, who uses repeating events that can then be individually customized in setting up class session times in Canvas.
Each class event can include links to handouts, videos, and whatever other information you might want to provide to students who need to be absent, or who have accommodations.
The Calendar Feed
Students or faculty can subscribe to their Canvas calendar feed using whatever their normal calendar application is (Outlook, etc.).
