During the Summer of 2020, the LTC will be offering opportunities to make simple changes to your courses to improve the canvas exerance for you and your students, and to dig deeper into Canvas features. For self guided assistance, please view the Canvas Service Page.
What Students Want in Canvas There are many good ways to set up a course. This training will focus on making a series of small, easy, and optional, shifts from your current course design to a setup backed by feedback from student panels conducted right here at UW-Whitewater. We will focus on
Matching your Assignments and Grades area to your course syllabus
Reorganizing Modules to a chronological layout
Getting assignments and tasks populated to student calendars
Utilizing the description area of Quizzes and Assignments
The goal is not to change how you teach, just how students view the course.
If you are interested in adaptive/personalized learning, please consider joining us this Thursday (5/14) at 10:00 am for a presentation by a Cerego pilot instructor on experiences piloting the platform. Registration is requested so that we can provide with a link to the Webex Meeting.
If you have any questions about the Cerego pilot project or this presentation, please contact us at email@example.com.
