Communicating

While classes are being conducted remotely, you can help students work together using any of these solutions:

  • Canvas Collaborations
  • Canvas Groups: You can set up groups for your students or allow them to set up their own groups. Canvas Groups allow students to have a discussion board, to meet via Big Blue Button conferencing, and to collaborate on files. Learn how to set up Groups.
  • Zoom videoconferencing: Through the Zoom app in Canvas, students and instructors have access to Zoom for meetings of unlimited duration, with up to 300 participants. Students can use Zoom outside of Canvas to set up study groups.
