Canvas and Learning Analytics Meeting
CEHD has many instructors using the Canvas learning management system both for online and face-to-face instruction. Jill Trites, has taught several classes in Canvas. Here’s what she had to say:
“I am currently teaching my 7th and 8th courses on the Canvas platform. As I graded papers in my First Year Inquiry (FYI) course this past week, I am convinced that the Speedgrader tool literally saves me hours because of the individual tools that I can use to comment on student work. I also like having the flexibility of providing video feedback, written feedback, or voice-to-text feedback for my students. After polling my students for the last three terms and listening to my current students rave about Canvas, I am glad that I started working with this Learning Management System two years ago.”
