Computer shortcuts are a great way to streamline your work. Canvas has also developed a set of shortcuts to make using Canvas features easier. How do shortcuts work? Well, for example, when you are in the Canvas SpeedGrader, instead of using your mouse to click to the next student in the SpeedGrader, you can simply click “j” for the next student or “k” for the previous student. Shortcuts allow you to use your keyboard instead of your mouse. There are shortcuts for assignment, discussions, SpeedGrader, grades, etc.
