Currently we use the Canvas learning management system for our online and on-campus courses. These learning management systems enable students to engage in online classroom activities through a web browser.
Through Canvas, professors can make class materials available to students via the Internet. Students can communicate with classmates by sending email and posting class or group messages through electronic Discussions. Some instructors use the online testing capability within the platform to reduce or eliminate the need for paper tests. Some instructors use the online file submission capabilities so that students may submit assignments electronically without the need for printing them. In short, Canvas can provide convenient enhancements to many classroom activities.
Each student and faculty member has a Canvas account which is protected by a username and password so each user has access to the proper groups, materials and activities. Canvas tracks all user activity within the system. All courses at Rose State College have an associated Canvas course site whether they are considered online or not. Student clubs and organizations may use Canvas as well if they wish to have an online community space.
Rose State College offers a wide variety of courses that can be taken either online or in a hybrid format. If you are unsure if an online class is right for you, please visit http://www.onlineexcellence.onenet.net/learner-readiness-tool/. If you have any questions about enrollment in any of our online, hybrid, or traditional courses, please visit with you advisor or go to https://www.rose.edu/content/academics/student-services/academic-advisement/ if you are a new student interested in enrolling.
