Academic Technology Courses

Choose Accessible Learning Content (CALC)

This webinar is hosted jointly as a collaboration between Academic Technology Support Services (ATSS) and LATIS in the College of Liberal Arts (CLA). Join us to learn to foster an inclusive learning environment. Being intentional and choosing to make your course accessible minimizes barriers to learning, reduces the need for individual accommodations, and helps to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to succeed.

If you’re anything like us, you want to get accessibility “right.”  However, it can be overwhelming knowing where to start and deciding what to do. Join this webinar and learn 10 tips to get you started. The tips you will gain in this webinar will generally improve the experience for individuals with non-apparent disabilities and who use adaptive technologies to support their learning. The tips will also improve accessibility and usability for other users as well.

Topics
  • How do the course format that you choose and the course content support accessibility or limit accessibility?
  • What course goals, skills, concepts (if any) may be an obstacle for students with?
  • Visual disabilities?
  • Auditory disabilities?
  • Cognitive disabilities?
  • Motor disabilities?
  • English as a second language?

5 Reasons to use a Canvas site template

10 things students want their instructors to know about Canvas

"The only time Canvas is not on my computer screen is if I'm in bed, or if it times out. It's always on.”

Students are continuously in Canvas. The University works with Instructure (Canvas) to identify areas where the tool can be improved. We wanted to get the student perspective on the performance of Canvas and what would enhance their learning experience. Toward this end, student focus groups were held in November 2019. These undergraduate students shared their thoughts and experiences with Canvas. 

These sessions not only provided insights into potential Canvas improvements (information we share with Instructure-Canvas), they also provided insights into how instructors can design and support their students in Canvas. This session focuses on what students want their instructors to know about Canvas.

Who Should Attend This webinar is geared towards instructors who use Canvas for teaching, course designers who develop Canvas courses, and anyone interested in designing learning environments that work for students.
