From the Archives:

Wherever you teach and however you teach, we want to remind you that Canvas is the perfect one-stop-shop to share your course materials, tests, and resources with your learners. Check out this brief post on the benefits of keeping your course in Canvas!

An orange circle on a gray background, surrounded by 6 orange rectangles, with orange arrows pointing from the rectangles to the circle. Purple text in the rectangles read: Giving and exam? Providing slide decks or PDFs? Assigning an essay? Need to organize learning materials? Creating a course calendar? Using an external tool? The answer, in the middle of the circle, in purple text, reads: Keep it in Canvas!

  • Quick Hits: Zoom Features – Zoom has proven to be a great tool for remote learning, but many of Zoom’s features go unnoticed. Zoom meetings have polling capabilities, breakout rooms, chatting, etc. Join us as we discuss Zoom features that you may want to incorporate into your online instruction. We will demonstrate these features and how to implement them in your Zoom settings. Facilitated by Clemson Online’s Learning Technology Specialist, Axel Ruiz.
