Canvas is a web-based learning management system used across IU. Every student in your course gets automatically enrolled in that course’s Canvas site. Using this tool strategically can help you keep students engaged and focused on what’s important in your course.
Canvas module templates
Designed by experienced online instructional designers, in partnership with the centers for teaching and learning, templates are a bundle of settings and instructional content that can help keep your course organized.
Pages allow you to add text, pictures, and multimedia to your course.
Enable all your students to learn, and provide equal or equivalent access to course material.
Canvas quizzes are best for low-stakes assessments, and include automatically graded questions types (multiple choice) and manually graded questions (short answers and essays).
Start discussion topics or encourage interactive communication through student-generated topics
Incorporate course materials including textbooks, library resources, and more in Canvas.
Facilitating group work
Group work, whether it’s in person or remote, can be facilitated through Canvas.
