It’s coming up to the end of the semester again. Here are some actions you should take by the week after grades are due:
Enter your Final Grades through MyCanisius. Click here for a brief video tutorial.
If you want students to see their Final Calculated Grade, click here to see a tutorial on how to do that.
Export your gradebook to archive the grades for your personal record. See thistutorial here to do that.
Archive your entire D2L course in the Brightspace format at the end of each term for your personal record. Click this link to see how to do that.
If you are teaching courses in the next semester, copy course content so you do not have to rush through it and have time to work on it in between semesters. Click here to see how. Text instructions are available here.
If you have not already, inform the Canisius Bookstore of any books or Cengage Unlimited products you intend to use. If you are not planning on using books or Cengage Unlimited products, let the bookstore know that as well. See their page here for more contact information.
Please note that if you allow automatic grading of your exam, D2L will not automatically grade written responses. Those need to be graded manually. Inform your students that the grade they have immediately after completing the exam is not reflective of their overall grade.

Clipchamp is a freemium (i.e., free to download and use with some “premium” features behind a paywall) alternative to ScreenPal. Clipchamp allows you to record and edit video, similar to ScreenPal. The Clipchamp editor is also a bit more powerful than Panopto’s in-built editor, though it does come at the cost of being more complicated to use.
COLI has several videos on using Clipchamp, with more on the way. Check them out below:
Introduction & Overview – This video takes you through how to download Clipchamp to your computer for faster access. Then it shows your around the Clipchamp dashboard.
Recording & Exporting a Video – In this demo, we take you through how to quickly record a screencast and export the video to upload it to Panopto.
