Canvas is SJU's Learning Management System! Information on support and getting started can be found here.

Kaltura is a video streaming service to which all students, faculty, and staff have access. Kaltura Personal Capture allows faculty to record videos on their own computer and post for students to watch on their own time (we refer to these as asynchronous meetings). Kaltura Lecture Capture allows faculty to do the same in an SJU classroom.

Zoom brings video conferencing, online meetings and group messaging into one easy-to-use application. Zoom can help keep your class going if you or your students have a situation that keeps you from meeting in person. Synchronous online class sessions, where everyone joins a Zoom meeting at a scheduled time, is one way to create engagement when students are remote, but Zoom can also be used to support other teaching and learning scenarios. Zoom can be used on laptops, desktops, tablets, and phones giving students many ways to access the class session.

In this section, you'll find information about the hardware available in our classrooms.

How to use the Attendance tool in Canvas

In Canvas, the Attendance (Roll Call) tool allows instructors to record their students' attendance and automatically adds a "Roll Call Attendance" column to the Gradebook.

If you do not see the attendance tool in your course it may have been hidden on the course menu. To add a hidden tool to your course navigation menu, see How do I manage Course Navigation links?

For details on enabling and using this tool, consult the Attendance (Roll Call) guides in the Canvas Guides.
