What Students Want in Canvas
April 5, 2022 at 1:00PM (via Webex)
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. The goal is not to change how you teach, just how students view the course. This training session will focus on four areas:
- 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
A recording of this training is already available!
