BoG 2/17/2016: K12 Design Advocate, Gamification in Google, Master Courses in Commons

Blog Post created by Administrator on Feb 17, 2016

Lots of blogging goodness happening within the community groups. A few of you must have blogging fever because we're seeing a healthy dose of informational posts! Here were a few that stood out!


Leading (K12) Learners Be Successful

Amber Hainline, a instructional specialist for Willard High School in Willard, Missouri, has a regular blog for sharing her Canvas tips and tricks for her faculty. She recently cross-posted one of her tips here in the community called Differentiating Assignments (k-12) in Canvas: Helping All Learners Be Successful. She discusses ways to leverage various Canvas features (i.e. differentiated assignments, excusing assignments, extra quiz attempts, extended due dates, etc.) to custom tailor a learning experience per each student. Lots of great insights here. Definitely worth sharing this link with your K-12 colleagues!


Curated Resources

We often have members in the community who are great at curating content and bringing additional visibility to powerful resources. Rosalie Ledda and Stefanie Sanders have done a great job in this mission. Both blogs come from the Higher Education group. Rosalie Ledda shares informative external links to help those hoping to add Gamification to resources in Canvas created by either Articulate Storyline, Adobe Captivate or Lectura in her post How to Create a Leaderboard for eLearning with Google .


Stefanie Sanders posts an internal curation of resources for leveraging Canvas Commons for Master Courses. In addition to centralizing already-existing Community resources, she hopes her posts fuels further discussions related to strategies around master course repositories.

Keep blogging, my friends.
