1. FIND OUT FRIDAYS: WHAT, WHY AND HOW? OER 101
Join Monika Chavez this Friday, 10/28 at 1 PM to explore the benefits of Open Educational Resources (OER) and how using these resources can directly impact student success, equity, and access.
2. CANVAS IN-LINE HELP/ EASIER ACCESS TO CANVAS SUPPORT
Do you wish you had an easier way to look for help from the Canvas Community or in the Canvas Guides while using Canvas? Well, we’re excited to announce a new in-line help feature for you and your students. Simply click the button in the righthand corner with the question mark and you will be able to easily search for the information you need and/or get connected to Canvas 24/7 help.
This will be active by the end of this week.
3. BLOG SPOTLIGHT: CREATING COLLABORATIVE MOMENTS THAT ENGAGE STUDENTS
Check out these ideas for synchronous and asynchronous activities from Dr. Michelle Newhart about ways in which you can engage your students with different types of collaborative and interactive tasks/formative assessment. If you are teaching a distance learning course, these are great ways to make certain that you have Regular and Substantive Interaction in your class!
4. APPOINTMENTS FOR INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN HELP
