Have you ever wanted to immerse your students in online discussion topics, make them dive deep into their brains to access previous knowledge or utilize higher-order thinking? Well, this is the show for you!


We use Canvas Discussions (yes, the very one you already have access to, you need nothing extra) to create an architecture of engagement using "Digital #Power-ups." Let us help you help yourselves implement this evidence-based approach in your online courses.


Who wouldn't want to see these two present together?
