Canvas Course Design Tutorial for Online Teaching
This Canvas course will introduce you to ideas and skills for adapting an existing traditional face-to-face course into an inclusive, student-centered online course. This asynchronous and unmoderated course is designed to model design features and tools you may wish to include in your own course. It will also provide you with the opportunity to experience the perspective of being a student in an online course. Anyone at Tufts can view the course within Canvas and enroll themselves.
VoiceThread is an online platform that allows instructors and students to create asynchronous conversations around media presentations, and can be a valuable tool when engaging students remotely. Professor Margaret Morris (Occupational Therapy) will present examples of how she uses VoiceThread throughout the term to engage her students, followed by an in-depth explanation of how to set up VoiceThread in your own courses.
In this online training session, we’ll show you how to create interactive lessons to use in your classroom with Poll Everywhere. We’ll discuss creating and delivering questions which students can answer with their mobile devices and ways to share student responses in real time. We’ll also cover the reporting and gradebook features of Poll Everywhere.
