Canvas Course Design Feedback – Version 2

As part of the Canvas transition, there has been a UW-System team working on developing different course template options.  The team recently surveyed faculty, staff and students from all UW-System campuses for their feedback on Version 1 of the Canvas course template. This feedback informed the development of Version 2 of the Canvas course template. They would like your input on Version 2.
