Hello, It’s Me, Your Test Student!

There's a Test Student in each of you Canvas sites!
There’s a Test Student in each of your Canvas sites!

The folks at Courseware Support want me to let you know that you can contact them at canvas@pobox.upenn.edu if you need Canvas help.

Hi there! Perhaps you haven’t noticed me before? It’s okay if you haven’t, seeing as how I don’t contribute much to class unless you prompt me. Please allow me to introduce myself. I’m your Test Student. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Another student this late in the semester?! But it’s after Spring Break!” Please don’t be alarmed! Maybe if I tell you what I’m doing in your Canvas site you’ll be eager to start working with me.

Okay, first things first, I’m not a real student. This means you don’t have to worry about me adding to your workload. In fact, you’ll be happy to know I’m only in your Canvas site to serve you. My main purpose is to let you see your Canvas site as your students see it. Through me you can you can take your own quizzes, grade your own assignments, and perform other actions just as if your were a student in your site. Pretty useful, huh?

If you haven’t fully made my acquaintance yet, I welcome you to learn more about me, which you can do here. Once you feel like you know me well enough, try using me by following these instructions.

Courseware Support has asked me to make more contributions to the Canvas at Penn blog in the future, so you’ll be hearing from me again, specifically about what I can and can’t do, as well as scenarios in which I’m especially useful. Until then, I look forward to working with you! If you have any questions about me, please contact Courseware Support at canvas@pobox.upenn.edu.
