It's here tweets Ryan Seilhamer

and Sharon Oxford agrees with a hearty email about how easy it is to use.  So how are you using it? Please help us get the word out.  You wanted it and Canvas delivered.  Let's keep suggesting new ideas and voting them up.  It is great to have a platform that changes to meet our users both teachers and students. What other features do we need to discuss? 

 

- Many thanks on behalf of many teachers.

The Mobile Movement

Posted by Matthew Moore Jul 11, 2018

I have been recently researching ways to reach the Modern Learner via mobile lessons, activities, projects, and plans.  Yes, there are a lot of apps out there that are beneficial, but as Biray Seitz and Ryan Seilhamer stated "While the Canvas app is effective in translating your course to be responsive on a mobile device, it is the job of the teacher or instructional designer to effectively design assignments to address the on-the-go learner."

 

I conducted a workshop at the most recent Online Teaching Conference in Anaheim (2018) on Motivating Students with Cell Phone Activities. But as research has it and timing luck has it, I wish I would have read more about the Canvas Polls app.  I think this Canvas Polls app and the upcoming Quizzes.Next features are going to be beneficial for increasing interaction while still being in the same overall environment.  I applaud Canvas for seeing that need.

 

Anyway, I have some materials that are pinned to my twitter account from the conference, and I can share with you what I tried to convey should you have any questions.  It seems like we are going to have a learning world soon that is community driven, individually contributed, location free, movable, right sized, goal oriented, success driven, failure learnable, and data large.  A new way to learn, interact, earn badges, etc. 

 

Excuse me, while I learn Chinese on Duolingo.

 

Zai Jian!
