How do I use the Course Activity Stream as an instructor?

The Course Activity Stream shows you important recent activities from a single course including announcements, discussions, assignments, and conversations. This stream is similar to the Global Activity Stream in the Dashboard when you first log in to Canvas.

The following activities will cause notifications to appear in the Course Activity Stream:

  • New Announcements
  • Replies to Announcements
  • New Discussions
  • New Discussion Posts
  • New Assignments
  • Assignments, Quizzes, or Discussions Changed from Ungraded to Graded
  • Due Date Changes to Assignments, Quizzes, and Discussions
  • New Graded Assignments
  • New Peer Review Assignments
  • New Conversation Messages

 

Notes:

  • Notifications in the Course Activity Stream will not appear for activity in Files, Collaborations, Grades, Pages, or Conferences; ungraded quizzes and surveys; or edits to Discussions.
  • Edits to Quizzes and Assignments will only appear in the Course Activity Stream when the Notify users that this content has changed button has been selected.
  • If your Course Home Page is already set to view the course stream, the View Course Stream link does not appear in the course sidebar.
