Before committing to a new learning management system, or LMS, schools and districts have some serious homework to do. Ensuring that a prospective LMS aligns with institutional goals, technology infrastructure, and the requirements of an entire learning community—from teachers and administrators to students and parents—will increase the likelihood of a successful implementation, and ultimately, improve teaching and learning. A hastily chosen LMS, on the other hand, may inhibit technology adoption, fragment users, and diminish the return on investment. View the Webinar

As a concept, mastery-based education is nearly a century old and has been championed in modern times by the likes of Salman Khan, founder of Khan Academy. While traditional education still prevails in the classroom, there is growing interest in instituting mastery-based (or formative learning) practises throughout the country.

Canvas recently introduced the Learning Mastery Gradebook, which gives teachers the option to view students’ learning based on standards rather than grades. This allows teachers to monitor students’ progress in mastering specific learning objectives and to quickly identify students who need additional help.

This webinar will cover: how mastery learning is being implemented in the classroom, why learning outcomes are important, how to get started with mastery learning, and about Canvas' Learning Mastery Gradebook now and in the future. View the Webinar

In this webinar, we'll cover: timeline for making decisions about online projects, process for configuring online tools, sample Canvas configuration for a small boarding school, and a process for assessment and reflective ongoing planning View the Webinar

Online courses are usually designed based on one or more of a number of factors, including: 1) faculty experience, 2) pedagogical principles, 3) institutional guidelines, and 4) classroom components. All of these contribute to the final design and flow of a course. Until now, it has been difficult to assess how well courses actually meet many institutional and teaching goals. While assessments seek to evaluate whether students have acquired skills and knowledge, there has been little examination of the actual learning process from students’ perspective aside from anecdotal survey responses.

The ability to extract learner interaction data from modern LMS platforms has begun to provide insight into what students actually do in a course—how often they work in the course, the order in which they interact with course content, patterns of interactions that can reveal content and process problems, and so on. Using data from two sample courses, Pamela Wik-Grimm will give examples of course design issues uncovered by analyzing student data. Solving these issues provides benefits, including improved student completion rates, reduced instructor teaching burden, and help for institutions in meeting budgetary and student performance goals.
