Amongst other things, here are five things I do before the start of the September term:
- Prepare face-to-face Canvas orientation sessions for new and returning students.
- 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.
- 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.
- Distribute notes on creating accessible documents in Word 2010 and 2013/PDFs.
- Manage permissions and account settings.
