The Gradebook in Canvas (60 min)

As a teacher, do you want to get better at interpreting and using the gradebook in Canvas? This workshop introduce the gradebook in Canvas and its functions. You also get to go through the recommended settings in assignments, the weighting of assignments and the Transfer to Ladok function.

A workshop can be ordered by everyone who is working at KTH.

No specific preparations are required.
