Does anyone know of a Canvas LTI app that allows for spaced repetition? Or can some offer suggestions for a spaced repetition app that can be integrated into Canvas? Thanks!
I'm not aware of an LTI that's specifically designed to accomplish spaced repetition, but that doesn't mean there isn't one out there or that there won't be a new one that comes along in the future.
That being said, I think you could accomplish the fundamentals of spaced repetition in a number of ways inside Canvas natively or through the use of iframes. As I understand the concept, you're wanting your students to review material in gradually increasing intervals. So teach and review the first day. Then have students test their knowledge a day later. Then 2 days later, then 4 days later, etc. The simplest way I can think of would be to create assignments with the activity of your choice, and set due dates accordingly. Create consecutive assignments with the same activity in increasing intervals of your choice. You can take advantage of many existing LTI's in this process. One that comes immediately to mind is Quizlet Flashcards.
If you're going to venture down using existing Canvas functionality to do spaced repetition in your course, you'll probably want to check out Copying items in a course or Canvas Commons to save yourself time setting up each activity.
Let us know how you wind up moving forward and how it goes. This is a fascinating topic.
Thank you for your suggestion! The question I asked is for an instructor with whom I am working. I will be sure to pass along your suggestions, and I will let you know what he decides.
Hi Tia Williams...
I thought I'd check in with you because there hasn't been any new activity in this particular discussion thread since the first week of February. It looks like both Rick Murch-Shafer and Adam Williams have given you some good suggestions so far. Are you still looking for other ideas and suggestions?
On a side note, part of me feels like this question should be turned into a discussion instead...simply because there isn't necessarily one "Correct" answer. Questions (as this one is right now) usually have a "Correct" response, for comparison. What are your thoughts? Yet, if you felt that one of the above responses was "Correct", we could keep this as a Question so that you could mark one of the above replies as "Correct".
Looking forward to hearing back from you soon, Tia.
Were you able to find an answer to your question? I am going to go ahead and mark this question as answered because there hasn't been any more activity in a while so I assume that you have the information that you need. If you still have a question about this or if you have information that you would like to share with the community, by all means, please do come back and leave a comment. Also, if this question has been answered by one of the previous replies, please feel free to mark that answer as correct.
