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.
