Online Learning using edcanvas

Tue, May 07, 2013 11:27 AM | Ranelle Maltas (Administrator)

If you are a frequent reader of my blog, you'll know that my favorite adjective is "free." Well, here's some more of the good stuff.


Online training is an excellent way to reach your learners 24/7. It can be very time-consuming to set up and expensive to create. If you are looking for a free option that is pretty well setup for you, take a look at edcanvas.com.  edcanvas is designed more for the K-12 group, but if you ignore that, you can easily create lessons for your organization training.


First of all, edcanvas provides an easy layout for uploading your resources for learning. Resources can be YouTube videos or files found on you Dropbox, Google Drive or from your computer. Give descriptions for each and then arrange the resources in the correct order.


Next, click to unlock the class to share a code that allows learners to take the class. For all the options that ask about the education level or grade, just select "Other" for the options. Now you can share your class via email.


If you need an assessment, you can now create quizzes for your class. The feedback provides statistics such as average score, highest and lowest score and the number of submissions. You can click on individual questions to learn how each was answered and by whom.


To learn more, view my canvas on using edcanvas. I put this together in less than five minutes, it's that easy.
