LMS Best Practices in All Modalities
Thursday, 2/20 |
ASAC and eLET collaborated and produced a document of what is recommended usage in Canvas for Face-to-Face, Hybrid, and Online courses. The session will start with the minimum recommendations for all courses and move to those that are completely online. We will look at adding an Announcement, Instructor Bio, Contact information and Office hours, and plan for interaction. We will also review the Syllabus tool and how to add one. The final minimum component is the Grades area. We will take a look at how grades can be added to Canvas for students to use to keep track of their progress. The remainder of the session will be the other recommended elements for hybrid and online courses.
