Innovative Use of Canvas in the Music School at Northwestern

Blog Post created by Kelly Roark on Dec 5, 2017

At Northwestern University, instructors in the music school are using Canvas in an inventive way to critique "voice juries".  They used to go through reams of paper and frantic handwriting sessions to provide feedback to students, but have streamlined the process using Assignments and the Speedgrader in Canvas.  The new process not only allows the instructors to provide immediate feedback to students but is easier for the instructors to type and for the students to read!  To learn more about the process, listen to our Digital Learning podcast.
