Implementation Date: November 17, 2020.
Instructors teaching in the winter session can now create Winter Session 2021 Canvas courses using the Prepare to Teach tool.
Follow the steps in the Start of Semester Checklist for Canvas, choosing the Winter Session 2021 term.
Instructors, if you…
- Previously started developing a winter session course using Spring 2021, you will need to import the course content into a Winter Session course shell in order to properly connect to Registrar sections.
- Created your course for Winter Session 2021 using the Request a New Course Shell option, you can now associate it with the Registrar section using Prepare to Teach.
Over the Winter break, five new LTIs were installed and are available to the campus community. Those five LTIs are:
ALEKS (for business), MyBusinessCourse, MyEducator, and GreatRiverLearning are publisher applications now available and best used for better content integration.

H5p is an interactive content application, providing a variety of engaging question types that can be added to Canvas. Each instructor license for H5P is $190/year and can be used in an unlimited number of courses. If you would like to integrate H5P into your Canvas course, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a license.
If you need help with any of these LTIs or other learning technologies, email email@example.com. Doing this will create a ServiceNow ticket and one of our team members will be able to help you. Keep an eye on our website and our Instructional Tools page for more information and guides for each of these LTIs in the coming weeks.

Canvas courses created before Fall 2020 changed to the concluded status. This process excluded courses with end dates set in the future (e.g., Dec. 1, 2025). See Course Conclusion in Canvas for additional details.
Instructure has been working on the release of a new feature for the Canvas LMS platform: Canvas New Quizzes. The company has released an aggressive timeline for the implementation of New Quizzes and sunset of Classic Quizzes.
Due to the importance and impact of this Canvas change, the CELT team is developing a testing and implementation plan for the Canvas New Quizzes.
This message aims at keeping you informed of CELT’s plan to address this important change to the Canvas LMS. We will post more updates on our website as more information becomes available. Stay tuned!
If you’re in need of help with a specific issue, you may submit a ticket to the CELT team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Oct. 18, 2021 – Update
The Canvas update allowing a user to associate their profile with their pronoun in Canvas continues to only impact an individual’s Canvas profile. This means that the associated pronoun would not be connected with the many integrated learning applications (Learning Tools Interoperability, LTI) we use at ISU. It remains our intent to implement this inclusive practice, and will share further updates as they develop. For those who have a name or sex marker change, you may stay up-to-date on the Name and Sex Marker Change policy through the Office of the Registrar.

ISU is exploring the best way to enable a recent Canvas update that includes users’ ability to associate their profiles with their pronouns in Canvas. This update is currently only for the Canvas profile, and not associated with the many integrated learning applications (Learning Tools Interoperability, LTI) we use at ISU. In the meantime, we will continue to share our progress with the intent to implement this inclusive practice soon. Additionally, if you have a name or sex marker change, review the Name and Sex Marker Change policy page.
