Canvas LOL LIVE course in the Free for Teacher domain.
 
Video games are fun and challenging.
Let’s play!
 
Created 3 levels of learning with 6 coin badges to earn. Once you have the coins you unlock the castle.
 
Created quizzes/question banks for different levels of questions.
 
Final task was to create a screencast submitted as an assignment with rubric. This allowed for meaningful feedback and gave great insight into what teachers were doing in their course.
 
Module set up to release based on the completion of a quiz.
