Indiana University adopted the Canvas LMS shortly after joining QM. After rolling out Canvas to faculty, it became clear how the LMS itself prompts instructors to design their courses in the spirit of the QM Rubric. This session will demonstrate some of the ways Canvas helps meet General Standards 2 and 8, as well as Specific Standards 1.1, 3.3, and 4.3. The presenters will also discuss how the LMS as a whole supports QM principles of being student-focused. Bring a device so you can join the sample course to learn more!
