ATTENTION FACULTY! – IMPORTANT MESSAGE
♦ Do you frequently merge two or more sections of the same class in Canvas? The WA Attorney General’s office recently ruled that many Canvas section merges are not FERPA compliant. As a result, BC will limit merges to those sections of a class that must be taught together (for example, SPAN 221/222/223). You can find more information at the Bellevue College eLEARNING web site.
