From the Archives

Canvas is a powerful Learning Management System (LMS) for teaching online. It is also a handy tool for when you are teaching in face-to-face modalities. Using features such as Modules, Discussion Boards, and the Gradebook can make your course more impactful because Canvas can help you and your learners stay on the same page. It can be used as a central storage and presentation site for some course materials. Read this archived post, Keep it in Canvas!, to learn more about how to use Canvas no matter how you teach here at Clemson.


Quick Hits: Grouping Assignments

Grouping assignments can be a great way to add weight to the grades in your courses and adding accommodations to your tests can make them more versatile. Join Clemson Online for a quick look at these topics. In this course, we will explain the purpose of both grouping assignments and online testing accommodation and demonstrate how to use them in your course. All of this in just a 20-minute Quick Hits session! Facilitated by Clemson Online’s Learning Technology Specialists, Axel Ruiz and Gray Jackson.

If you missed out on the July training, not to worry! We have the May Kaltura training which cover the same content. Watch the playlist here!
