Collaborative Curriculum Development

In my earliest days working with Moodle, I wondered...can a learning management system be used as a collaborative tool? Suppose K12 teachers in a school, district, or state want to share learning resources. Could Canvas provide the vehicle?

 

If curious, please have a look. An example has been created here:

K12 Sci Curriculum  (Course is set to "Public")

Note: This course needs revision, having discovered accidental import of content.

   My error, will address this ASAP.

Note 2: Working on cleaning up this course after my error

(See Why do deleted assignments appear in the Assignments Summary of the Syllabus? )

 

Update: New course created:

Collaborative Curriculum Development (No wonky bits!)

 

Modules and discussion topics could help a group of educators to

  1. choose a small number of standards to target
  2. determine general selection criteria (what goes in "The List")
  3. establish guidelines for listing items (what "The List" will look like)

 

If useful, this could be fashioned into a template and added to the Commons.
