USU Design Tools

Be prepared to hear the term "kennethware" used not only in conversations, but also in many presentations at InstructureCon 2015.​ If you don't already know, Kennethware is the project name for a product that Utah State University’s Center for Instructional Design Innovation (CIDI) developed called USU Design Tools. USU Design Tools is a set of tools for Canvas that provides an easy way to build out the module structure of a course including quizzes, discussions, assignments, syllabus, themes, and template pages. It significantly reduces the time it takes instructional designers or instructors to complete these tasks.
