Increasing Online Student Engagement and Teaching Presence in Canvas, Tony Anderson

In this session, the presenter will discuss the current state of student engagement/interaction and teaching presence in the learning management system and discuss ways that they can be increased and better utilized using the Canvas media tool. 

Increasing Student Success with Canvas, Daonian Liu

Many undergraduate students need help in developing time management and online communication skills to succeed in a blended learning environment. Canvas makes it easier to design a hybrid course that allows the learners to see quickly where they are in the learning process and what they need to do to stay focused and on track. With the Canvas analytics tools, the instructor can see student activities and learning progress at a quick glance to identify at-risk students as well as those who are well ahead of the class. Liu will demonstrate how she facilitates student success in her hybrid course by providing a simple Canvas course interface as well as a multifaceted communication mechanism. She will share how she regularly acts upon the course analytical data, reaches out to the at-risk students with caring and empowering help, and revises teaching strategies to lower student anxiety while upholding high expectation of learning outcomes.
