Degree project courses in Canvas

The degree project is an independent project that concludes the studies at KTH. Degree project courses can be designed in different ways and Canvas is used in different ways to facilitate the process. Here you can read about different arrangements used at KTH.

There are big differences between different programs and schools in terms of how they have chosen to use Canvas for their degree project courses. Some don't use Canvas at all, others use Canvas to some extent but have a large part of the course information and support in other places. Finally, there are those who use Canvas as their main platform for the degree project courses, where most or all of the information and services for the students are gathered.

Courses that mainly use Canvas also differ in how the course coordinator has chosen to adapt the rooms for the degree project courses. The biggest difficulty seems to be how to smoothly group and bring together different types of users in one and the same Canvas room. It can be difficult for supervisors to find their students, for examiners to see the students' work and for course coordinators who have to keep track of the big picture. In addition, it can get confusing for the students. This page is for those who want to know more about different arrangements for degree project courses in Canvas.

Before and at the beginning of the degree project

Degree project courses can involve several challenges, including how to inform students about the process before admission to the course and how to organize students, supervisors and examiners in the Canvas room. There are different ways to meet these challenges.

During the degree project

Many parts of the degree project take place outside of Canvas, but different functions in Canvas may be suitable to use during the course of the work. Announcements and discussion forums can be used for communication to all students, and Canvas's assessment functions can be used for partial submissions and opposition.
