What: The Canvas LMS (Learning Management System) has a range of communication features that enhance the students learning experience and provide the teacher with valuable feedback on student comprehension and progress.
Why: to build effective communication into your Canvas courses.
- Canvas notifications (students will need to set this up on their mobile device or laptop), and
- Announcements, Discussions to allow for “real time” communication and feedback with threaded responses from the teacher and fellow students.
- weekly quizzes (that are not scored). These help you to check that students are understanding your lessons and point the student towards the areas that they should revise.
