Canvas course ownership and life cycle.
Set Grading Scheme
The course grading scheme is used to convert the numeric % value of the Total score into a letter grade. There is a default grading scheme that is set in all Canvas courses, but instructors are able to change the grading scheme.
Cross-list (Combine) Sections
Cross-listing allows Instructors to add section enrollments from individual sections into a single Canvas course, which allows Instructors to manage all course materials in one location. It is recommended to cross-list sections before content is added to a course.
Enroll Non-Student Users
Instructors and Students are added systematically from ARIESweb. All teaching assignments in ARIESweb are added into a Canvas course in the Teacher role.
Teachers are able to manually enroll Assistant Teachers, TA’s, Designers, etc.
