The Paperless Campus

March 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Cut down on paper use by taking up a few of these practices in Canvas.  

  • Use the Syllabus feature – an easy reference for students, no paper needed. 
  • Upload files that were previously handouts (create PDFs). Files can be easily added to Modules. 
  • Make use of Quizzes – no more paper/pencil quizzes, all quizzing can be completed online. Questions can be shuffled and answer choices, too. Multiple attempts can be enabled. 
  • Assignments – can be turned in and graded through Canvas. PDFs can be uploaded and submitted by students and you’re able to add feedback to the files.
  • Library and OER Resources — learn how to find and integrate online resources, such as permalinks to library databases, links to the library catalog and e-resources, and links to Open Access materials and OER (Open Educational Resources).

Pedagogy Connection: Canvas is Ramapo’s Learning Management System. This workshop guides instructors on how to use Canvas and other electronic resources to reduce paper consumption on campus while increasing student engagement and learning.

Presenters: Deb O’Connell (IDC), Ray Fallon (IDC) and Hilary Westgate (Librarian)

Open to faculty and staff.
