Once installed, proHelp markers appear on most Canvas pages in precise and unobtrusive locations. When a marker is clicked, a pop-up box appears that contains a question, or questions, that provide direct links to answers in the relevant Canvas help pages.
These help “shortcuts” improve the efficient use of the LMS among educators and students, promoting self-sufficiency and reinforcing best practices.
Behind the scenes, proHelp systematically collects and collates data from LMS documentation, while the proHelp algorithm determines which help pages have been most accessed or changed. The top results are ranked, assigned to help markers, and matched with corresponding location in the Canvas interface so users can find help where it is most needed.
