Canvas End of Semester for Instructors

The end of another semester is here.  We’ve put together a guide to help wrap up the end of the semester with Canvas.  We hope you find it helpful.  If you have any questions, tips or discover issues with Canvas, please let us know at  You can find the “End of Semester Guide” at the TCNJ Canvas Online Resources page (

The most important item in the guide is in regard to your course concluding for students.  Many courses are set to enter a “Read Only” mode for students at the end of the day on December 5, 2014.  If you are planning on using Canvas to facilitate finals or you wish to continue to collect work from your students, you will need to change your course ending date through the course settings.  More information can be found at the bottom of the webpage at

We would also greatly appreciate if you could take some time and provide feedback on your Canvas experience this semester.  You can find the survey at

Students will also have an opportunity to provide feedback on their Canvas experience through a link that will be available in a Canvas announcement going out tomorrow morning.  It can also be found at the TCNJ Canvas Online Resources page (

We hope you had a positive experience using Canvas this semester. Please email if you or your department would like customized instruction on making the most of Canvas for the Spring term.
