    The end of the quarter can be tough for students, but using Canvas shouldn't be. Two new one-minute videos can help you navigate Canvas easily, with more videos to come. The first video helps you find your course in Canvas and update your list of favorite courses, and the second video shows you how to submit Canvas assignments correctly. UW-IT realized these video guides were needed after the Technology Help Desk received a number of Canvas help requests. You called. We listened.

    The redesigned Find Courses feature in MyPlan — UW’s academic planning tool — gives students and advisers a more robust search experience, and it’s now mobile-friendly too. Search the upcoming quarter or explore the course catalog to create an academic plan. An auto-suggest drop-down search box makes it easy to search by keyword, General Education  (GenEd) requirements, course prefix, course title and course description. Results list current and future courses by quarter, and post-search filters narrow results further by GenEd requirement, course level, and number of credits.
