Five Things for a Healthy Start to the School Year

Blog Post created by c.t.coltman@bham.ac.uk on Sep 8, 2015

Amongst other things, here are five things I do before the start of the September term:

 

  1. Prepare face-to-face Canvas orientation sessions for new and returning students.
  2. Provide advice and support to new and existing academic and professional services staff in the creation/updating of new and existing courses including learning design and accessibility.
  3. Provide a checklist for academics and professional services staff to use when adding content to Canvas which includes consideration of disabled students, copyright and use of portable devices.
  4. Distribute notes on creating accessible documents in Word 2010 and 2013/PDFs.
  5. Manage permissions and account settings.
