How are we using Canvas?
To better support students, both in our classroom and learning online, all WDMCS students will be using Canvas to access and submit work, important resources, receive feedback, communicate with teachers, collaborate with peers, and take more ownership of their learning. Your students' teachers will communicate more details about how they are utilizing Canvas in their course and how you can connect with your student.
There are varying uses of this integration tool, from elementary and secondary related to content and courses. In addition, Canvas is utilized to develop WDMCS online and blended courses. More colleges are moving toward the implementation of a learning management system. For example, both Iowa State University and the University of Iowa use Canvas for all their students in face-to-face and online courses. Our WDMCS students will be prepared for these future opportunities. Infinite Campus is a Student Information System (SIS), required for state reporting and still an important tool within the system. Therefore, official letter grades will continue to be reported in Infinite Campus.
