Mobile App Design | Course Evaluation Checklist

Blog Post created by Lily Philips Employee on Jun 29, 2018

Thanks for the likes, tweets, and feedback regarding the Course Evaluation Checklist! Members of the Education Services team collaborated with Canvas mobile app guru, Ryan Seilhamer, to create another go-to resource to help you understand mobile app design considerations.

 

Why Consider Mobile App Design?

Some students will access your Canvas course and materials from a computer at school or home. Other students will use their mobile device during their lunch break at work, standing in line at a local coffee shop, or (for younger students) in a classroom that is tablet friendly. Students will have a slightly different experience whether accessing Canvas from a browser or using Instructure's free Canvas app. 

 

About The Checklist

This checklist focuses on design principles for mobile app users. Examples are built directly into the checklist so you can quickly see how incorporating these considerations creates a dramatic difference for students. We hope you'll find this checklist to be a simple and illuminating glimpse into the mobile app.  

 

Potential Uses

  • Share this checklist with your colleagues
  • Apply the principles to your own course
  • Elevate the quality of your institution’s courses
