Tools to Bolster Your Canvas Course Quality Initiatives

***Captions coming soon***

In this webinar, we explore the ways that the Cidi Labs instructional design tools for Canvas can help make your Quality Matters work much more efficient and easier to scale. 

You’ll hear first hand from Southern State Community College how the advanced course design toolset and course readiness tracking tool have helped them build higher quality courses and more effectively manage the work involved in doing so. 

You’ll also hear from Quality Matters how they have used these tools to enhance their professional development courses which are delivered through Canvas.  In addition to seeing the impact the tools have had at Southern State and QM, a brief demonstration of the tools will also be provided. 

At a time when the quality of online courses affects more students than ever before, we’re excited to highlight some tools that can make that important work easier!

When it comes to online courses, beauty is more than skin deep. Studies have shown that the aesthetics of an online course are important factors in motivating students to engage and persist in the learning process.   Traditionally, however, designing professional-looking courses requires loads of time and technical skills such as HTML, CSS, or JavaScript.   This webinar explores how DesignPLUS can help you create high quality, engaging, and accessible Canvas courses without requiring advanced technical skills.

Research has shown that a well-designed course promotes a positive user experience. In this video, we’ll use DesignPLUS – our advanced course design toolset – to transform the look and feel of a basic course.

In March 2020, the small team at Fullerton College moved 20,000 students fully online in just 3 days by leveraging DesignPLUS and UDOIT Cloud to create engaging, accessible, and quality-driven Canvas courses.  

UDOIT Cloud 3.0 – our Canvas course accessibility checker – is a significant leap forward in the functionality and user experience of the platform, making it easier and more efficient than ever for you to ensure your Canvas courses are accessible to all learners.
