The Course Info Tool pulls data about a given course from the Registrar's Office and embeds it within a Rich Content Editor box on that course's Canvas site. The Course Info Tool may already appear on your Canvas site if your school has chosen to have it included in the course template for your school.
Anyone who has access to use a rich content editor will be able to embed the Course Info Tool.
The tool may be embedded in any rich content editor on your Canvas site. Pages that may include the editor include: Syllabus, Pages, Announcements, Assignments, Quizzes, Discussions. Teaching staff most commonly choose to include the tool in their Syllabus or Home page.
Go into the rich content editor that contains the tool, then select the gray box that indicates the tool's location and delete it.
Yes, the tool updates dynamically. If the registrar alters any information related to the course, the information displayed by the tool will be updated.
Delete the gray box and add the tool again by clicking on the blue "i" icon.
The information displayed in the tool is fed from the Registrar's office and is the same information displayed in the course catalog. If information is incorrect, please go through the normal channels as you would when updating course information for the catalog.
If a category of information you selected to include isn't appearing, it means there is no inforamtion being fed from the registrar for that category. If this is occurring, you will see a message underneath the course info. box stating "Additional Information will be shown if available from the Registrar." Once the registrar begins feeding the information, it will appear in the tool. Please contact your registrar if you notice any problems with the information they feed to the tool.
