What is an E-Campus Collaborative for Online Education (ECCOE) Workshop?

An ECCOE Workshop is an in-person event focused on providing practical tools, strategies, and job knowledge through humanized, interactive, and facilitated experiences. Each ECCOE Workshop is designed to explore a targeted area and supply participants with tangible takeaways that are immediately usable in their professional roles. Our workshops also foster a community of Miami University Regionals faculty and staff that are dedicated to providing the best possible learning experiences for students and advancing the field of online learning.

Preparing for the New Canvas Gradebook

THURSDAY, JANUARY 23, 2020 | 12-1 PM | MUM THH 101

In 2017, Canvas released a new grade book that has been available in beta, but not set as our default. In January 2020, ahead of the Spring term, the current grade book will be disabled and the new Gradebook will become the default. Early adopters are raving about the added features available in the new grade book, making grading in Canvas easier, more flexible, intuitive, and smarter -- thereby elevating the Gradebook user experience. Come see what’s new and learn how to navigate the new Gradebook in time for Spring 2020 courses.
