Next month we celebrate the 1 year anniversary of going Live with Canvas!  We thought the Community might have some fun (and inexpensive) ways to help us celebrate with students and faculty!  It will be during our summer break so not quite as many on campus.  Here are some thoughts we had - what great ideas can you add?  And thanks in advance!  (We'll only choose a few to actually do, of course!)

  • A campus-wide email announcing the anniversary, thanking everyone for their role in the transition, and providing key facts such as:
  • Number of students using Canvas
  • Number of courses using Canvas (fully online, hybrid, and web-enhanced)
  • Number of faculty trained using Canvas
  • Recognition list of Peer Trainers during the year
  • Recognition of Distance Learning Committee
  • An email or “suggestion box” announcement for other ideas about Canvas for students & faculty to use
  • Possible roll out of new TVCC Resource Center, if not already done
  • Some type of contest offering a webcam to students and/or faculty
  • Give-aways of Web Camera security covers with “TVCC Canvas” on it
  • Possible roll out of using TVCC Canvas for Organizations
  • Links to new Sample Courses for Fully Online, Hybrid, Web-Enhanced
  • Four 30-min workshops throughout the day with 2 Basic feature reviews and 2 Advanced feature reviews; recorded.
  • Open House 
  • Reminder of the Online Teaching Cohort for the Fall
  • Promote use of “TVCC Commons”
