What You Want to Know Wednesday | Setting Up Your Online Course

December 22, 2017


The Information Technology Services (ITS)  Learning Management and Distance Learning teams have organized What You Want to Know Wednesdays (WYWTKW). Held at the King Science Library, this instructional series is designed for UK students, faculty, and staff to learn about academic tools and resources. These sessions have concluded for the Fall semester and will resume in Spring 2018 on the following dates: 
 
All workshops will take place from 2:00-3:30pm in King Science Library room 213 F. 
January 17th: Creating Your Flow with Canvas Modules 
February 7th: Turnitin 
February 21st: Introduction to Online Course Development 
March 7th: Blazing Questions 
March 21st: Hands On with Google Apps for Education 
April 4th: Canvas: Learning Mastery 
April 18th: Active Engagement in Canvas and Zoom 

The most recent session was led by ITS Instructional Designer, Marshall Herbst, who provided essential information on how to set up an online course in Canvas. Topics included "start here" pages, course templates, setting up modules, an introduction to assessments, and post-course surveys. Attendees were offered hands-on assistance, specifically in the area of modules and course flow. Modules are a way to organize courses by weeks, units, chapters, topics or other organizational structures. Herbst also highlighted the "UDOIT" tool, an LTI which scans a Canvas course and assesses multiple accessibility issues in order to help instructors create more accessible courses.
