Extending Canvas

  1. 1. Extending Canvas Re-bundling Education With Basic Learning Tool Interoperability
  2. 2. A long time ago, but not so far away…. Students enrolled at a College or University, drawn by the promise of well-bundled educational experiences. • Student-content interaction + • Student-student interaction + • Student-mentor/instructor interaction = Degree!
  3. 3. But then Competing educational opportunities starting popping up all over the web. And it was fast and easy to find exactly what you wanted, exactly when you wanted it.
  4. 4. Back at the ranch Learning Management Systems sought to combine all the tools an instructor might need to facilitate all three types of learning interactions into a single easy to use package.
  5. 5. Unfortunately… Bundled tools don’t always compare well against their unbundled counterparts • Better blogging tools (WordPress) • Interactive assignments (Merlot, others) • Better discussion tools (Piazza, Prulu) • Better wikis (many)
  6. 6. And you’re trapped because The LMS has a couple of things you can’t easily get anywhere else… • Your roster, synched to SIS • Centralized data collection and reporting
  7. 7. What to do? Integrate best-in-class tools and content into your LMS, not to replace it, but to enhance it.
  8. 8. LTI Consumer (Canvas) LTI Tools (many, me) Smart Launch ?
  9. 9. Instructure + Google Docs + Scribd + Crocodoc + Big Blue Button + jQuery + Amazon + LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Skype… = Canvas (OTB)
  10. 10. Canvas + + Peer Evaluation + Piazza + YouTube + custom css , js + iClicker + MHCampus + Post’Em + Prulu = Canvas@UD (OTB)
  11. 11. Canvas@UD + ? = Your course
