Canvas Mobile Users Group

Hello there, Canvas Mobile Users Group!

 

It’s been quiet around here lately! To help kick start some new collaboration in CMUG, Ryan, Kristin, and I designed a quest! Now, this quest will require some reflection and some writing. All of of the requirements center on mobile design and maximizing student engagement within the Canvas Student App.

 

Are you ready? Let me out line them for you!

  1. Read this blog post! (Easy, right?)
  2. Watch Ryan and Kenneth’s InstructureCon 2018 presentation Canvas Mobile Apps, Not Just for Students Anymore. Feel free to add a comment or a question under the video. While this isn’t a required part of the quest, it would be great to hear about your biggest takeaways from the presentation or your favorite tip and how it can be applied to your work. You could also ask a question!
  3. Participate in the Canvas Student | Favorite Feature Poll. This will be a way for CMUG members to see how opinions of students at various institutions are alike or different. For those of you who are up for a bonus challenge, there’s even a Google Form version of the poll you can share with your own students before you cast your vote.
  4. Read the Mobile App Design | Course Evaluation Checklist. You do not need to comment on Lily's bog. Just read and then think about how you could apply some of its content to your work.
  5. Write a Blog in CMUG. Based on what you learned from the video, the poll, the checklist, and the other mobile-friendly instructional design you’ve picked up along the way, write a blog and share your insights! If you want, feel free to use this template to get started.

 

Canvas Mobile Design 2019 BadgeWhen you’re done, you’ll receive a nifty badge for your Community profile and 150 points. You'll probably earn more points with likes and comments on your blog, too!

 

Please note: When you work on quest components, to earn the badge, you have to click on the links in the badge itself. You can find this in your profile, then rewards. Completing it by following the instructions here won’t "complete" the steps that are required to award the badge.

 

Throughout the coming months, Ryan, Kristin, and I will help develop the discussion that take place as comments and in blogs throughout CMUG. It will be awesome to learn from each other as we browse the materials as I outlined above.

 

As I fly through CMUG in my newly designed super-suit, I’ll likely award some surprises along the way! Thank you in advance for your thoughtful comments and participation.

Hello there Canvas Mobile Users!

 

I am thrilled about the announcement of Canvas Student iOS 6.0 and Canvas Teacher iOS 1.4, and I hope that the Mobile Team and Cody have some energy left! I probably will create some work for them at the conclusion of March’s CMUG Mission.

 

Within CMUG, start a discussion about a feature you wish was included in Canvas Student, Canvas Teacher, or Canvas Parent. Click HERE to go to a template. Next, fill it out, but do not remove the pre-filled “cmug mobile idea” tag.

 

Even if you don’t initiate a discussion, you have a mission as well! March is going to be about developing potential ideas. I need all CMUG members to participate in these discussions. Share your ideas, use cases, and comments. The more voices we include, the stronger the final ideas will be.

 

At the end of March, Ryan, Kristin, and I will take the discussions and formulate some well-rounded Feature Ideas to submit to Ideas on CMUG’s behalf. Of course, those involved in a particular discussion will be tagged so you continue to receive vital updates.

 

As I fly through CMUG and all of the discussions about feature ideas, I’ll likely award badges and points! Thank you in advance for your thoughtful comments and participation.

Mission: Recognize Awesome

Posted by Super Panda Jan 28, 2018

Hello there Canvas Mobile Users Group!

 

In CMUG is Back and Redesigned, Ryan and Kristin shared that I would come to visit from time to time. Since the launch of the new CMUG space, I have been busy helping with Mobile Ideas and cheering on the Mobile Team at Instructure.

 

But! Now the time has come! In the next week, you, the amazing Canvas mobile enthusiasts, deserve some recognition. I'll be flying through content and looking for awesome mobile-centric contributions.
