ICYMI – Active Online Learning in Canvas for Everyone

Earlier this month, Digital Learning Strategist James Butler led a presentation on tools and strategies to increase active learning opportunities for your students within Canvas.

In Canvas, the options for integrating active learning are expansive. It can be daunting to choose activities and assessments that work well for the diverse backgrounds your learners represent. In this recorded presentation, you will learn inclusive principles to help with this task and learn why inclusivity in learning activities is paramount for student success.
