Hello! Thank you all for your contributions to these groups because I have learned so much in the short time I have been a canvas user!
I am working on an online history course. I've read several posts on visual learning, group work, etc but nothing quite answers my question. So, my question is...do my students post group projects for review by other members...think a modern jigsaw. For example, one group works on civil rights events of the 40s, another the 50s, etc. What is the most efficient way to have students share their work? I thought I could create the google slides for each group then embed those into a page or have them just share their link in a discussion post. Are there other ways?
You might want to look at the Collaboration tool in Canvas. You could set up groups and give each group a shareable Google Doc and then re-post it back to the page.

This is a very good question. My teachers ask how to keep students accountable in group projects. Teachers are used to monitor for students not doing their own work through paper pencil methods, (or not monitoring ) but using the digital tools is a particular challenge for them. How can I support teachers to use their digital resources to ensure student work is actually student work in a collaborative project? This is new ground for many but I'm confident we can use these tools in a meaningful way.
I'll look forward to see what this group shares & explores.
@nbiddinger-c , I do a lot of group work in my course and over the years I've done the following to address the individual side of group work.
Hope this helps!
We are giving the Instructional Designers area a little bit of love and just want to check in with you. This will also bring this question new attention.
