We are, LGTV Studio, a team of User Experience Designers studying how to maximize student communication and improve online class community. Our goal this semester was to build upon the current Canvas Profile feature, in a way that is user friendly, and would encourage students to connect and network.
Robust Canvas Profiles is an improvement of Canvas’ current social tool. Our team has implemented various features for students to connect and network with one another. We believe that this tool helps them understand their classmates better and improves their desire to interact with the online community.
Of our redesigns, this submission addresses the Contact links feature. Currently there are only a few slots to add social media. Through our research we have learned that more students would like to connect through email as well. With this submission, we would like to add the option to share email addresses as well as an optional place to put a mobile number, as some students feel comfortable sharing while others do not.
We have attached a presentation. This is the link to our Google Survey
