A message from The Faculty Center

Dated: May 24, 2019
Subject: Moodle in Archive, All Instruction Now on Canvas



Summer courses are now available to faculty in Canvas. All SSU courses will be exclusively on Canvas starting Summer 2019. Moodle is no longer available for instruction.  Ongoing Canvas trainings are scheduled through Summer 2019.  Please visit the Faculty Center Workshop and Events page for more info, and you are always welcome to stop by for one-on-one support during regular hours.

Important Summer Dates to Consider when Planning Communication with Students

  • May 24 - Campus Email and Calendar Migration: SSU will migrate all of our university email and calendaring from Microsoft Exchange to Google. This change impacts faculty, staff, and students, so please keep this in mind as you plan your Summer communication to students. For more information about the G-Suite migration, please refer to the G-Suite How Tos and FAQs on the IT website

Canvas Release Notes

The New Canvas Gradebook will become the default gradebook in all courses starting this summer. Review the “How do I use the New Gradebook?” guide to learn about all the new handy features.
