I am thinking about leading a seminar entitled "Keeping Students in Canvas." I want to demonstrate ways to embed content into Canvas pages rather than linking to it. I think it keeps students more on task, but I don't have any evidence for this. Do you know of any papers or articles where the authors discuss embedding vs hyperlinking content? I did a quick google scholar search but didn't find much - and I'm not even sure if I'm using the right search terms.
Please let me know if you have any evidence (aside from anecdotal, of course) why embedding content - or keeping it in one system is better than making students click on a link. I guess I should ask for any data that doesn't show a difference, too.
I'd also like to know if you would be interested in such a presentation or if you think others might be.
