Although we’ve had Canvas for less than a year, many teachers are now using this new online course system! We are very excited as we watch the use of Canvas enhance learning in Perry Township classrooms !
There are many great features that teachers are using. One example is an Online Discussion Forum. These online discussions provide a symposium of sorts where students are able to share ideas and write responses to other student postings.
Multimedia integration is amazing feature in Canvas. Video and audio can be recorded and embedded into any part of Canvas. This works well for teachers as they give instructions and feedback. Students are also able to compose audio and video work in Canvas.
Finally, the online quiz feature in Canvas has numerous question types and enhanced features including the ability for teachers to schedule the revealing of correct answers and the ability to allow multiple attempts for the same test! The three features we’ve discussed in this post are the tip of the iceberg, there are many more features available!
