I can see great value in the Speed Grader App.  I wonder how to support teachers not being overwhelmed with all the great options.  When do you engage in a thread of comments?  When do you just grade?  When do you leave a comment & move on?  Perhaps this should be part of planning for the assessments - how much engagement for specific assignments.  That could prevent overload and giving up on this useful tool.

I absolutely love the idea of learning outside the classroom or outside conventional learning environments. It's an important constructive disruption of the education model.

Sorry to be so shamelessly promoting this idea, but the easier it is for teachers to bring content into Canvas, the quicker they'll be able to climb the SAMR ladder.

Vote for a more robust QTI function built into Canvas: Strengthen Canvas Import Ability with QTI Files today.


Thanks and Cheers,
