We took another step forward in Canvas design by creating a suite of Canvas course templates available for purchase.
We did this because we believe that templates help reduce stress load, encourage growth, and help you and your faculty create an engaging Canvas experience!How is that possible, you ask? Well, it's simple... a template turns a blank course shell into a fill-in-the-blank Canvas course.
Our Recipe For Success
Provide Teachers with more time to focus on enhancing learning content + Provide Students with simple navigation, clear directions, built-in support, and technical guidance right when/where they need it most = Increased Canvas buy-in from Teachers and increased Student engagement
We've loaded our templates with modules that include sample pages, assignments, support materials, and more. Banners, buttons, icons, and other design elements are included and can easily be customized and re-used.
I am the Team Lead for the Instructional Designers within the Content Services Department at Instructure.
I am passionate about all things instructional design... and especially love working on the graphic design elements of a template! It is not uncommon to find me huddled at my desk "obsessing" over a particular color choice or page design for a course template. It's all about the details! =)
