Library Support for College Writing and Freshman Honors Colloquium: FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I'm new to Canvas and find this all confusing? Can somebody help me do this?

Yes, if you need assistance, please contact Tammy Voelker ( 

What if I want a different selection of Library Tutorials and Quizzes from the ones offered here? For example, what if I only want to assign a few of the tutorials?

This can be done easily. Once the content has been imported into your course. Simply modify the instructions to instruct students to complete the tutorials you desire. Next, delete the quizzes that aren't needed.  In Canvas, click on the three dots in the far right of the column of the unwanted quiz to find the remove option to delete it from your course.

What if my student tells me they already completed these tutorials in another class?

This is possible. Some DKS-FYE class sections use some of the modules or they may have done them in a previous College Writing course. There is no way to transfer their scores from one course to another therefore we suggest you ask them to complete just the quizzes again for your course. They take only a few minutes and can help reinforce the content. 

Why are some tutorials recommended for both tiers of College Writing?

Course content and instructional approach varies by instructor.  Even if a student is assigned the tutorials in both courses the content remains relevant to their research needs and can be useful to frequently review. You may also  find that your students in 21011 did not have the chance to do them in their particular 11011 course or if has been a while between classes, they may be in need of a refresher.
