January Teacher Appreciation Event: Seasonal Home Page Button Giveaway
We are Instructure’s Instructional Design Team! More specifically, we are @kristen_anderse, @tiffany_foster, @mmetallo, laurie.norris, and @psanchez1. Between the six of us, we have over 36 years of Canvas experience! Within Canvas, we have been students, teachers, admins, trainers, and instructional designers. We have created fully online, hybrid/blended, and face-to-face courses for learners ranging from preschool through post-secondary and everything in between.
We utilize the Canvas Community on a regular basis to position instructional design resources! We understand the impact and power of the Instructional Designers' space within the Community and want to give back. We are excited to collaborate and share tips and tricks about our Canvas Design Best Practices.
For January’s event, we have created free, seasonal-themed home page button images for your course! You can choose from photography or illustration-based designs. Just like changing a bulletin board in your classroom to reflect a season change, you can update the design of your Canvas home page buttons. Be sure to check back in the Community in the coming months for other seasonal button sets.
Each of the buttons can lead to course essential topics: Learning Modules, Resource Materials, Question Forum, and Teacher Contact Information. Link your buttons to relevant materials in your course to give your students easy access to commonly needed materials.
- Select the link above to download the button PNG files.
- Upload the button image files to your Canvas Course Home Page and insert ALT tag to ensure accessibility.
- Select each button to link to the appropriate course content while still editing the page.
- Save your changes.
- Test your new buttons to ensure links are functional.
Follow us for our full event! We can't wait to continue sharing with you!
