    Key elements of quality course design covered in this section include regular effective contact, student-to-student collaboration, and communication activities that build a sense of community among online learners.
  • Section C: Assessment (Mar. 13)
    Key elements include the alignment of objectives and assessments, the clarity of instructions for completing assessments, and evidence of timely and regular feedback.
  • Section D: Accessibility (Mar. 20)

Canvas Groups
10:00 am to 11:00 am
ConferZoom online *or* in person at the Center for Instructional Innovation (BS-163/164)

A Canvas class roster can be split into Groups for the purpose of encouraging collaboration among students. Discussions and assignments can be done by groups, and each group of students gets its own mini-Canvas course where each student can upload files, create content pages, and communicate via announcements and discussions. At this session you will learn the options for creating Groups, what students in Groups can see and use, and some ideas for grading collaborative assignments.
