The Online Course Design Toolbox offers accessible course resources and templates that instructors can use and modify in any existing Canvas site. Sample modules, discussions and assignments are included and easily imported and customized in your course. For the more experienced (or just daring), we've included a CIDI design tools primer and link to full training. Learn to create tabs, accordion drop-downs, add icons and more.

Prerequisites: You need a basic understanding of Canvas and a course development site. Be sure you are currently enrolled or have completed Canvas Quick Start. We will not be covering the basics of Canvas here.

Course Description

Prerequisites

You need a basic understanding of Canvas and a course development site or sandbox. If you are building a course you intend to teach, request a development site. If you are just interested in learning and experimenting, request a sandbox. Be sure you have taken Canvas Quick Start or are currently enrolled. We will not be covering the basics of Canvas here.

Course Organization

Required: Provide learners with an explanation of how the instructional materials, resources, technologies and learning activities are used in the course and how each will help them achieve the stated learning objectives or prepare them to demonstrate course competencies.

Also, provide an overview of the steps to complete the course and general activities to support learning. Canvas uses Modules to organize course learning resources. 

Each module may include:

  • Videos covering the topic
  • Readings to enhance student understanding
  • Discussions to connect to students
  • Quizzes to check understanding
  • Assignments to show student mastery of the material
