  • Once you have configured the Attendance tool, Roll Call Badges are a versatile way to make quick notations about your students using the Roll Call attendance tool. For example, you can quickly mark when a student is disruptive or actively participating in the class so that you have a record of that student's activities.

    You can add and manage any course-level attendance badges in any student's attendance information profile. New badges are always available to all students and will not/cannot be created for individual students. Badges may be created, however, that are only applicable in certain circumstances such as "Absent due to death in family" or "Absent due to school-sanctioned activity."

    Canvas admins have the right to delete any course-level badges that may be considered inappropriate.

    Note: Roll Call Attendance Badges are not visible to students.

  • You can drag and drop the students in your course to create a seating chart for your classroom.

    Once you have created your seating chart, learn how to take roll call in your course.

    Note: Currently Roll Call does not support a seating chart print option. However, you can always print the screen image from your browser.

  • Canvas provides tools that supplement face-to-face courses by providing additional information online. Students will be able to access content for courses they are enrolled in through Canvas. Some institutions provide Canvas course sites for face-to-face courses automatically, while others require their instructors to request course sites in Canvas.

  • Instructors invite observers to join their courses. By default, when you are added to a course, you will be able to view the course without having to accept a course invitation.

    Note: If you do not receive an invitation to join the course, please contact the instructor.
