In college year 2017-2018, the VU has introduced Canvas. Before, they always used Blackboard. But how does Canvas work?
On your dashboard and under ‘courses’, you can find your courses. By clicking on them, you can find recent notifications and messages, but also which course group you are in. You can find your group members and teachers under ‘people’ and upload and download files under ‘files’. The modules and syllabus are available here and you can view your grades.
Conversations can be found under ‘inbox’ and you can find your schedule under ‘calendar’.
If this did not help you, you could take a look at the Canvas guide (https://sites.google.com/vu.nl/canvasstudentguide), or ask the VSPVU board for help by sending us an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by coming by our room during our opening hours. We are always glad to help you!
