LTIs are a great way to tie together separate learning tools. But, what if we want to tie together separate parts of the same learning tool? Take a look at how one school is creating LTI integrations that build feedback loops into Canvas, using the API to enrich LTI capabilities.
What follows is a quick run-down of what I went through in my slideshow this morning.
First, the tools we looked at:
This is my "personalized" administrative dashboard for Canvas. It's where I wrap scripts in enough interface and directions that I can remember what they do and how to use them.
Give students a narrative view of all of their feedback (well, all of the messages about the assignment -- not the CrocoDoc comments) to promote their own metacognition/sense of self-efficacy.
Advisors can get a sense of how their advisees are doing in their courses, check the Faculty Journal, log in to observe them.
Provide some analytics on teachers' use of Canvas (to measure how we're doing on meeting expectations, flag people in need of support -- or doing interesting and exciting things).
I've given several presentations on just this tool in the past:
Sync ICS and webcal feeds into Canvas course calendars. This is currently dependent on a fork of phpicalendar for parsing, which is no longer in development. I'm actively working on bringing it and (its ICS parser) up to date for the coming school year.
All of the plugins are on Packagist.
Additionally, I had a list of resources at the end:
As always, if you use my stuff, please feel free to reach out (SethBattis@stmarksschool.org) with questions/ideas -- and to submit issues when something is broken!
