proHelp launches ‘Student Progress’ feature for Canvas teachers

May 6, 2020 — Prolaunch has released a major upgrade to its Canvas productivity tool proHelp Enterprise, with the addition of new features for teachers, including ‘Student View Anywhere’ and a ‘Show Student Progress’ button that gives a quick visual on student progress.

proHelp Enterprise subscribers can now turn on the ‘Student View Anywhere’ button which provides teachers with a ‘Student View’ button on virtually every page of the Canvas LMS. Instead of navigating back to the Home page to turn on Student View, the teacher can now switch to Student View from virtually anywhere and view the corresponding Student page.

The latest proHelp​ upgrade also offers teachers easy access to Student Progress Data. This is helpful for large classes when tracking student progress. Student Progress is shown in percentage terms next to the module title. proHelp Enterprise users can set the student limit to any value, while for proHelp Basic (free) users, the Student Progress feature is limited to 50 students and 15 modules.

At its core, proHelp Enterprise provides contextual help markers for teachers, administrators and students that contain a question, or questions, linking directly to Canvas documentation relevant to that page. Contextual markers enable teachers and students to find help quickly where help is needed most.

proHelp systematically collects and ranks data from Canvas official documents and determines which help pages are most in demand. These are matched with corresponding locations in Canvas to make finding help easy.

Installing proHelp into Canvas can help reduce support calls and queries from students, and updates teachers on new features and best practices.

proHelp Basic can be downloaded for free from the proHelp website and provides help markers for all teachers. Subscribing to proHelp Enterprise unlocks all help markers for teachers, administrators and students.

The new features of ‘Student View Anywhere’ and ‘Show Student Progress’ are now available to all proHelp Enterprise subscribers.
