Do you have videos you need on http://vc.bhc.edu? This location will be going away soon. If so we need to get them moved to Ensemble within the next month or so. Contact Andy Olson or Lee Bughman. A new Ensemble LTI has also been added to Canvas so you can easily embed your videos and playlists.

The Google Drive & Office 365 LTIs have been added to BHC's Canvas LMS. This allows users to log into those areas through Canvas and then locate and add files into Canvas.

On 4 January 2020, the existing Canvas Gradebook will be replaced with the New Gradebook. No data loss will result in this transition and all features align with previous functionality.

Since a Facebook policy* change and despite numerous attempts I have not been able to get my Twitter posts to sync once again to Facebook and I keep forgetting to post to Facebook which will sync to Twitter.
