Are you looking for a simple way to take first-day attendance? Your Canvas course site can help. For FSU’s distance students and for students learning remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, attending means making contact with the instructor as specified by the instructor at the start of the term. You can create a password-protected Canvas quiz or survey or use the discussion board to take attendance on your first day of classes:
