Join CATL for a presentation and Q&A session Friday, August 20 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. We’ll be covering the advanced and sometimes “hidden” editing features in Canvas pages, syllabi, assignments, and other areas of Canvas where the Rich Content Editor can be found. We’ll cover layouts, tables, buttons, callouts, linking within and between pages, and doing more with images.
This is a great topic for those who wish to freshen up the overall look and feel of their Canvas site, incorporate new or improved banner images, want to make their content more accessible, are building liquid syllabi, or just want to see more of what Canvas can do!
CATL recommends all summer courses use Microsoft Teams meetings if they require synchronous online sessions, as access to Blackboard Collaborate Ultra will end on June 30, 2021.
CATL is here to help instructors get ready to teach with Microsoft Teams meetings this summer! Join us for a live online training session, “Teaching With Microsoft Teams” on Thursday, May 13 from 3–4 p.m. or on Tuesday, May 18 from 11 a.m.–12 p.m.
This session will cover the following basics for using Teams meetings in your class:
The instructional portion of the session will also be recorded for those who cannot attend.

Extensive documentation for scheduling Teams Meetings can be found on the UWGB KnowledgeBase. Here are the steps we recommend for setting up Teams meetings for recurring synchronous class sessions.
NOTE: Your meeting invitation will not automatically update to include/remove students who add or drop the course. After the meeting has been created, you can edit the meeting series to invite additional students or remove students from the meeting series. To edit a meeting series in Teams, click any occurrence of the meeting in your calendar once, then click Edit > Edit Series.
After scheduling your Teams meeting, you can customize the meeting options. Of particular importance for a class meeting is controlling whether or not students can present (i.e. share their screen). For maximum meeting security, we recommend setting the Who can present? meeting option to “Only me.” This setting will allow students to use their mic, camera, and chat during the meeting but will prevent them from sharing their screen, starting a recording, or creating polls.
Whenever a student needs to present in a meeting, you can quickly promote an individual student to the presenter role in the meeting’s participants panel. For more information on setting user roles in a Teams meeting, please see this Microsoft Support guide.
Students will be able to join a Teams meeting to which they’ve been invited by finding the meeting in the calendar page of the Teams application. Joining a Teams meeting through the calendar of the Teams app is the easiest way to join a meeting, but you may also wish to post the meeting join link in a Canvas course page or event so that students can join the meeting by clicking a link within your Canvas course.
Once a Teams Meeting has been scheduled, a meeting join link is automatically added to the bottom of the body of the appointment that is added to your Teams (and Outlook) calendar. This link can be freely copied from your calendar and pasted anywhere, including a Canvas course. Each scheduled occurrence of a recurring Teams meeting will use the same join link. Consider pasting the join link for your meeting in any or all of these Canvas course locations:
