Canvas FastTrack Ep. 11 - Student View

The Canvas FastTrack Video series is a collection of quick videos aligning Canvas with Dr. Puentedura’s SAMR Model of Technology Integration.  This model has been used by many institutions as a framework for infusing technology into teaching and learning activities.  In the video collection we will dive into the various tools in Canvas and how they align with the SAMR Model of Technology.  Watch this four-minute video introduction to SAMR if you aren’t already familiar with the model.

Episode 11 is a 2 1/2 minute video about Student View; at the Augmentation level of Technology integration Students will submit assignments online to Canvas.  Often teachers wonder what exactly this submission option will look like for students and how they will access their items, we discuss how and when a teacher may act as a test student to view these options. 

Thanks for watching and please feel free to leave feedback, requests, and suggestions in the comments below!

Thanks‌ for this helpful series, in each video I've picked up some small tidbit, knowing I can "delete" the test student is much quicker than a reset and more thorough!

I'm gaining a lot from these videos.  I like the heads up about being able to see Google Drive - there will be questions about that one.  Thanks.


It's a shame the Student View isn't more robust. For instructors who are hesitant to use Google and O365, the inability to see what happens from a student perspective is enough to keep them from using it Smiley Sad

Community Advocate‌ another awesome video.  I did not know you could delete the test student.  This will make a lot of my teachers very happy!
