Differentiated Pages

Differentiated Pages

(21)
Canvas should support differentiated Pages. Similar to differentiated Assignments, Pages could be set to be visible to certain groups of students. This would allow for the creation of diverging tracks or branches within a single course.

 

At UCLA Extension, we're currently developing a Canvas training course for new instructors. We have included two groups of instructors in one course: 1.) Online/Hybrid instructors, and 2.) Web-facilitated instructors. By necessity, we've designed our course so both groups move through the same content. However, if we had differentiated Pages, then we could tailor our content to each group's specific needs and enjoy the benefits of keeping them in the same course (discussion, collaboration, grading etc.).

 

There is a similar suggestion for differentiated Modules for which I have voted in support:

 

Module access to specific groups, sections or students

I am in agreement for this feature request.  We have faculty who teach an embedded honors or service learning section with the regular students and being able to only release a module or pages to just that section would be desirable.

This would be quite helpful for our SPED students, our multi-age classes, and Concurrent enrollment classes operating online or in person.

You got it  @kgordon ​ - sending it now - looks like we just need 5 more!

We have quite a few manually cross-listed sections where the instructors merge sections for convenience to manage content easier - this kind of capability will definitely help!

Why not organize the class takers in groups, and put the pages there?

The customization of a learning pathway is something we are researching.  My colleague, Deactivated user , is leading our thinking on competency-based education, which would include a process for the customization of content/content availability for groups of students as well as individual students. This process is likely in the long-term.  I will defer to Deactivated user​ to comment any further, but know we are looking into this.

Kind regards,

Jason

As Deactivated user​ mentioned, this is something we will likely consider down the road. However, we do not anticipate including this functionality for the next 12-18 months. There is a better chance that we will increase functionality in Modules prior to pages. Thanks for the all the feedback! Stay tuned for updates.

I would like to see this feature! The ability to unlock certain Pages in a module for specific students would be nice.

The Radar idea stage has been removed from the Feature Idea Process.  You can read more about why in the blog post Adaptation: Feature Idea Process Changes.

 

This change will only impact the stage sort of this idea and will not change how it is voted on or how it is considered during prioritization activities.  This change will streamline the list of ideas 'open for voting', making it easier for you to see the true top voted ideas in one sort, here.

My institution would benefit greatly. It's so much more convenient for instructors to house sections within the same course, but then it gets tricky when the sections start going down different paths.

This feature would be useful now that Pages can be added to students' to-dos. In multi-section courses, to-do dates are likely going to fall on different dates. The same flexibility assignments and discussions have would be beneficial here.
