- Let's take a look at what we'll be creating throughout this video series. In Canvas, as a teacher, you have the ability to create a class website. Here, I'm looking at the Teacher View of the website we'll be creating. We'll be adding and organizing assignments from our syllabus. We'll be creating classroom discussions. Grading papers, uploading files, making the syllabus available online, setting student outcomes, creating quizzes, modules, and even configuring Canvas to work with third-party applications.
From the Student View, our website will allow students to access our online course. Here, they can view what assignments they have due and when. They can view what grades they've earned in our class. They can view upcoming quizzes, take and submit quizzes online, submit papers online, and even have access to communicating with us, the instructor, through the Canvas account. Let's go ahead and dive right in to setting up our Canvas account.
