Minimum Use Of LMS (Canvas) Policy

Effective Date Jan 1, 2021

The university Learning Management System (LMS) is a common access point for course materials for students.  To ensure all students have access to key course information, the university requires that all courses make the following available in the LMS (currently Canvas):

  • A course syllabus that meets the requirements of the Course Syllabus and Required Materials Policy in the syllabus tab.
  • The completion and submission of any required assessment materials (assessment and results) when prompted.
  • The use of the gradebook specifically to ensure that students have timely access to their overall grades on an on-going basis.

If the instructor cannot meet the requirements of this policy, he/she should notify the academic unit head/program chair at least two weeks before the beginning of the term to be assigned a proxy.
