Reminder: Etherpad is being discontinued! 

Due to concerns about user authentication, Etherpad will no longer be supported in Canvas. Google Docs, however, will still be available for real-time document collaboration. If you have an Etherpad document that you would like to save, please do so by August 8, which is when the tool will become unavailable to users. (One way to save it would be to copy and paste the contents into a Google Doc.)

New Features

Excused Assignments

Instructors can now excuse an assignment for an individual student by going into the gradebook and typing “EX” in the grading cell. When an assignment is excused, it will be left out of the student’s total grade calculation.

Group assignments can also be excused, while still allowing other group members to view and submit them.

Our UC Berkeley community lost one of its guiding lights when Steve Tollefson unexpectedly died on Thursday June 4, 2014. Steve taught writing at UC Berkeley for several decades and was the author of four books on writing and grammar, including Grammar Grams (1989) and Grammar Grams II (1992, HarperCollins), as well as short stories and numerous articles. He was a recipient of the campus Distinguished Teaching Award. Steve retired after over 30 years of service back in 2012, but he continued to contribute to our community and his presence and generous smile never seemed to leave our campus.
