They will be replaced by the OEI's readiness tutorials called Quest for Online Success. Do not use the old tutorials with Canvas; use the Quest tutorials.

- VeriCite anti-plagiarism service
- Canvas release notes. Since Canvas is cloud-based, bug fixes, enhancements, and new features can be easily added. Our system will be updated with them every three weeks. Release notes will keep you informed of them.
- Graphics for Canvas.
- Use Canva.com (not Canvas.com) to create graphics to download to your computer, then upload into Canvas. For banners, choose the Leaderboard template, which creates banners that are 728 x 90 pixels. For graphics to add to the course cards on the Canvas Dashboard page, use the Facebook App template, which is 810 x 450 pixels.
- Canvas cleanup service. Instructors teaching with Canvas were offered the option of having Canvas clean up their courses after migration from Blackboard. This option will be extended to future Canvas instructors. Details TBA.
- ConferZoom. This free web conferencing software has been integrated into Canvas. Instructors just need to go into Settings - Navigation, and make it available in their courses. ConferZoom is the CCC's replacement for CCC Confer. Before using the software, faculty have to sign up for an account at ConferZoom.org.
- Online tutoring. NetTutor is installed in every Canvas course. View faculty information on NetTutor.
