Once your district has enabled the integration between Actively Learn and your Canvas instance, Teachers and Students can work with assignments in Actively Learn through Canvas. Learn more about setting up an integration between Actively Learn and Canvas.
After teachers import their classes to Actively Learn from Canvas, assignments can be synced with Canvas. Any assignment assigned in Actively Learn can now be selected and synced to Canvas to appear as an assignment.
After syncing the assignments, teachers can update the details of their assignments, such as the due date or changing the points an assignment is worth, within Canvas.
Note: if you change the points an assignment is worth in Canvas, you’ll need to re-sync the grades from Actively Learn to Canvas for that assignment to see the updated grade calculation.
Teachers can sync assignments with Canvas two ways within Actively Learn.
Assigning an assignment to a class
Teachers can choose to sync an assignment with Canvas while they are initially assigning an assignment in Actively Learn to a class that was imported from Canvas. This option appears as a checkbox on the Assign to classes view.
- Click the assign to class "+" button for the text
- Select the classes you would like to assign the text to, and select the checkbox for "sync to Canvas"
- Click "Assign" and the assignment will be assigned to your classes
Selecting an existing assignment
Teachers can choose to sync an assignment with Canvas after it is already assigned to the class in Actively Learn with the Manage menu. Teachers can use this method as a way to re-sync assignments with Canvas if needed.
- Go to the class
- Click on the "Manage" menu
- Select "Sync assignments with Canvas"
- Select the text(s) you would like to sync to Canvas
- Click "Next" and you will be notified when your assignments have synced
Once the assignment is synced correctly, you should see a Canvas icon on the tile of the assignment.
Teachers can create groups to easily organize class assignments in Canvas. When syncing Actively Learn assignments with Canvas, they will always appear in the first group listed in your Canvas assignment view.
Teachers can also sync the grades of their assignments in Actively Learn with Canvas.
