Welcome to the new semester, Gators!
Whether your classes are online, in-person, or hybrid, you will likely use Canvas, UF’s e-Learning platform. UFIT created a series of short videos this summer to help you make the most out of your time working within the Canvas platform. Each video is less than a minute long and focuses on a key feature to be familiar with:
1. Using the Canvas Calendar
→ Keep track of course deadlines and learn how to add personal to-do items.
2. Do’s and Don’ts for Using the Canvas App
→ Learn when you should use the Canvas app or the web version.
3. Connecting Your Canvas Calendar To Your Phone/Desktop Calendar
→ Sync your Canvas calendar with your favorite mobile or desktop calendar.
4. Viewing Grades in Canvas e-Learning
→ See all of your grades in one place.
The Keep Learning website also has helpful resources, including a Canvas Quick Start Guide and up-to-date FAQs. Students with questions about any feature in Canvas can talk to e-Learning Support staff in the Hub, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 352-392-HELP/4357 option 3. Phone and email assistance is available 7:30 a.m. to midnight M-F, and 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on weekends.
