HI everyone, At callaghancollegewallsendcampus we are on a trial for Minecraft for Education. So far so good. We have been working on improvements from last year and have started to implement a 'Minecraft License' (like a pen license in primary schools) based on good digital citizenship. We are using Canvas as our base platform for all student…(Show moreShow less)
Hello all. So, I have spent the past few days reading, and reading, and then read some more. I think I know quite a bit (but still feel like a novice) in regards to the use of badges within Canvas. Was really hoping someone could help me here. It looks like Canvabadges is gone and there are 3 main options: Badgr, Credly, and Accredible. I am…(Show moreShow less)
Thank you so much for the quick response Kim Hammond ! I would love some information on the creativity that you mention. Do you have a how-to file or anything that could be helpful for that? I have looked on the youtube channel for badgr and google searched and all that I keep finding are the pages in the canvas community I have already read.
Since I wish I had access to something like this when I started Gameifying my class, I thought I'd map out what I'm doing in my World Lit class for anyone who is interested in seeing how Gameification can work and the challenges I overcame incorporating it into Canvas. I have very little coding experience (I wish I had more), so all of this was…(Show moreShow less)
Looking for a badging platform which integrates with Canvas and is EU/GDPR compliant. Does anyone have any suggestions? Credly have a UK option, which is compliant, but they said the LTI is not available in the UK. I don't believe any of the others listed are compliant at the moment. Grateful for any ideas! Thanks
We are trying to setup what we call "Challenge Tests" which when passed opens access to a bonus content page in Canvas. I see you can set prerequisites at the Module level, but don't see a way to set prerequisites on individual pages, or other content or quizzes etc. Is this actually the case, or am I missing something? These challenge tests…(Show moreShow less)
Kona Jones... related to the assessment comment..... I had my students complete an open-ended pre-assessment in google forms in which I measured their knowledge in 13 content areas. I used those scores on each content area to determine 1 of 3 specific reading lists that I then connected using masterypaths. It would have been much easier to…
We hear a lot about gamification in edu, but my own experience has been that the general ideas tend to outweigh the specific applications. Especially here in the ID space, I think it would be useful to generate some conversation about the specifics! Hence this blog post, which may evolve into a running conversation/space for those of us interested…(Show moreShow less)
Gerrol, When I last posted, I had just reviewed an earlier post about leveling up and which mentioned the need to manually mark zeros. Instead I played around a little :-) I set "treat ungraded as zero" and created the following grading schemes with leveling options: and here is what the students see: MasteryPaths is currently working…
If you have not explored Mastery Paths yet, I highly suggest doing so. In short, Mastery Paths is a way to differentiate and individualize learning. Students take an initial assessment. The assessment can be auto graded if it is a quiz or students can even submit an assignment that there teacher grades in SpeedGrader. Based off of the score,…(Show moreShow less)
Thanks, Ryan, for the info! If I set up three different modules (option 2 above) will students be able to see the other modules that are not in their masterypaths? I am trying to avoid clutter :-) If I put three masterypaths in one module, will students see the other options (i.e., will the middle path student also see items 1-5 and 11-15 or…
So now that I'm pretty happy with my gamified course shell, I would really love to go the next step and make it feel more like a game. I don't want to do anything fancey but I'd love to be able to add some satisfying swooshes or emphatic sounds when students click "take quiz" or a crowd cheer when they finished. This is all probably well over…(Show moreShow less)
Would it work to add some media clips to the pages? It could be video or just audio. It might be a nice element of choice for the students to be able to turn the "ambiance" on or off. However you end up going, I am sure it will be great and a ton of fun. I am enjoying following this.
From the University that brought you the Merry Canvasmas!!!" and canvasmas we decided to show our love for all things Canvas! As it’s the most romantic day of the year (Valentines Day in case you've forgotten) we are using the #WeLoVeCanvas to share videos and experiences on twitter from our amazing staff and students. They showcase their…(Show moreShow less)
There are two parts to what I'm looking for. I'd like to have a student perform a task multiple times, and receive credit for each time they complete the task. For instance, I want them to locate a job board website, and award them 1 point for every job board they submit. That's part one. To me, the best UX for a student would be to submit that…(Show moreShow less)
Oh, absolutely, Danny Childers: it is really amazing. You can change all the dates using spreadsheet formulas, and you can also change the titles of things (that is helpful for me because of how I release the items, changing the names of some of them as the semester progresses, and then needing to reset that at the beginning of each new semester).…
