Canvas WalkMe Provides Canvas WalkThru

Canvas Tips & TricksThe new Canvas WalkMe provides real-time guidance that is easy to follow. WalkMe simplifies the user experience by providing on-screen, step-by-step guidance at the moment of need so that our instructors can complete any task successfully. This makes learning specific Canvas tasks more efficient and boosts SMU’s overall productivity.

The Player Menu is accessible via the Canvas WalkThru widget, the button positioned in the corner of your browser screen, in Canvas. Clicking on this widget opens the Player Menu, which allows instructors to view and search through a list of available WalkThrus. When a WalkThru is selected, it will immediately launch step-by-step guidance seamlessly overlaid on your site.

Instructors can access the WalkMe Player Menu, inside Canvas, using most modern browsers including Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Without any software download or installation, instructors can access WalkMe in real-time as a SaaS application right inside their course.
