Course Management

At my institution, we work with the Canvas course management software.  I really love this CMS and it is by far the best I have ever used.  The Wiki pages function is particularly helpful because it allows me to to create information pages based on the unit work we are doing, and it also allows students to edit pages.  We have a collaborative class notes page where students can type or upload their notes from a given day and share them with their classmates.

I also like that I can upload PDFs and documents and the students can preview them right in the wiki page, so that they do not have to keep switching back and forth between screens while we are discussing things in class.  Currently, I’m working on building a collection of links to help them with drafting and with writing introductions and thesis statements.

Here’s what I’m dealing with right now though.  Zoe hates work.
