UFIT completed several updates to the Canvas e-Learning environment since the close of the Spring 2019 term. The major upgrades and enhancements are listed/linked below for the benefit of instructional faculty who were not teaching this summer:
1. Zoom Conference Tool Replaced BBB
Step-by-step video instructions for using Zoom are available online.
2. Lynda.com Migrated to LinkedIn Learning
Lynda links embedded in a course will need to be updated to their LinkedIn Learning URL.
3. New Gradebook Features in Canvas
A guide to using the new features is available on the Canvas Instructor Guides website.
4. Turnitin Upgrade
Slight changes in Turnitin increase reliability in submissions generating reports.
5. Quiz Accommodation Tool Added
A great time-saver for instructors by allowing course-wide accommodations for an individual to be made from one place!
Faculty who would like assistance with any of the tools in UF e-Learning are welcome to call (352-392-HELP, Option 3), visit (Hub 132), or email the UFIT e-Learning Support team.
