This session will take place completely online in the Canvas learning management system, at 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

  • the opportunity to take a quiz in Canvas to experience the student perspective
  • working with and managing question banks in Canvas

  • 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.
