Canvas: Quizzes & Rubrics–with Draft State!
Jun 9 – Jun 12 all-day

Take your assessment to the next level with quizzes and rubrics! This course introduces participants to creating quizzes and using rubrics in Canvas. Prerequisite: experience using Canvas, or completion of Canvas: Basics Online or another Canvas training. This session will take place completely online in the Canvas learning management system, at coloradomtn.instructure.com. It will take place over 4 days: it begins on Monday morning and ends Thursday afternoon. There are deadlines for each day’s work to keep the group moving forward together, but participants may work on the assignments at any time of day or night, from any computer (PC or Mac) with an Internet connection and either Firefox, Safari, Chrome, or Internet Explorer. This course will include:

  • explanation and exploration of the kinds of quizzes and surveys that Canvas offers
  • learning to build Canvas quizzes and how to grade them
  • the opportunity to take a quiz in Canvas to experience the student perspective
  • working with and managing question banks in Canvas
  • how to create a rubric in Canvas and apply it to a graded item
  • opportunities for practice with rubrics

In addition to these tasks, the group will also be communicating via the course discussions. Some of the tasks must be done outside of this training’s main course, in a “sandbox” course where all the participants will have an instructor role. This “sandbox” course will be provided for course participants.

Jing in June
Jun 10 – Jun 11 all-day

Join us in June for Jing! The free Jing software from Techsmith does 3 things that are really useful:

  • It captures what you see on your computer as an image you can label with arrows, text, boxes, and highlighting.
  • It records what is on your computer screen as a video you can easily post online or download and save. This video was made using Jing.
  • Quick and easy sharing of your Jing images and videos with a free Screencast.com account

Jing is a free screen capture software made by TechSmith. Visit TechSmith’s Jing website for more details about Jing.  This training will be held online in Canvas over 2 days in the Summer 2014 semester. After you register for this session in WebAdvisor, log into Canvas later that day or the next morning and you will see the Canvas course listed. Enter the Canvas course and follow the directions. The first day you’ll get oriented and install Jing on your computer; the second day you will practice creating and sharing screencast videos and screenshots.

Estimated completion time for this training is 1 hour. If you have any questions about this course, please contact the instructor, Dr. Gabrielle Orsi, at (970) 947-8359 or via email at gorsi@coloradomtn.edu.
