"Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana."

Groucho Marx

Doesn't time fly when you're having fun? How are we in week three already?

  • Thanks for submitting your 5 – 15 reports, I will be in touch with updates and feedback as necessary. I have kept today (Tuesday) open on my schedule, if you want to make a last-minute appointment. ( I cannot guarantee this will be a regular fixture during the semester.)

Tuesday tech tip: Add the Canvas Calendar to your Calendar

Canvas has a tutorial with screenshots to add the Canvas calendar to your own calendar. The example here is for Google Calendar, and here is a tutorial for Outlook

I just copied the feed: From the left-hand menu on Canvas, select calendar. On the right under the monthly mini calendar, and under your various canvas courses calendars, you see "calendar feed". Click that, and copy the feed, which starts with https://muhlenbergcollege.instructure.com/feeds/calendars/[here will be your personal user data]

Click on the red calendar feed in the bottom right corner of the calendar page on Canvas

Then I added it to the calendar on iCloud through "New Calendar Subscription". The principle is the same for other calendar applications. The times for the meetings and drop-in tutorials for my courses are all in there for the whole semester already, and I am adding the assignments bit by bit. This may be useful if you are "organizationally challenged," or just like having everything in one place.

Once you are subscribed to the calendar, you can tweak the notifications.
