Month of Microlearning

Month of Microlearning (MoML) workshops are 30-minute sessions on a variety of digital teaching and learning topics. Led by eLearning specialists and faculty and staff from around campus, each session is designed to provide attendees with the information they need to begin using the skill/tool right away. Month of Microlearning workshops are scheduled during the Fall and Winter quarters.

Presenter: Bruce Wolcott

You’ve shared Purdue OWL links and tried a few other things, yet students still struggle with following citation format in their writings in your courses. We’ve all been there! Do you want to use Cidi Labs’ advanced editing tool to support students’ learning of citation format? In this session, you will learn how to use “popup content”, to facilitate and support students’ learning of citation formats. You do not need to have prior knowledge or experience with Cidi Labs!

Presenter: Li Liu

Add interest, clarity and a cohesive visual look to your course today with the new user-friendly Icon Maker in Canvas. This easy-to-use tool added to the Rich Content Editor allows you to create polished icons in multiple locations to chunk content, give a visual call to action, and help create clear navigation for your students. We will look at all the adjustable variables that will help you to make a course icon toolkit: shape, color, size, and text.

Presenter: Morgan Olson

Use Cidi labs to create Canvas homepages that can be designed with style to keep your students engaged and with the purpose of helping them navigate through your course with ease. We’ll discuss how to use images from:

  • Institutional templates
  • Customized images from Pexels or Unsplash
  • Personalized images using Bitmoji

Presenter: Raji Sundar

Gradescope is a tool that is integrated with Canvas that can be used to grade student work. Gradescope uses a combination of handwriting recognition and also AI in order to speed up the grading process. I will show you how I use this tool in my classes to grade paper-based assignments. This tool is especially helpful in math and science classes.

Presenter: Alexa Serrato

After importing a Canvas course, have you spent a lot of time clicking on each assignment, announcement, or discussion to edit the dates to reflect the upcoming/current quarter dates? Join us to learn the tips and tricks of editing the dates on your Canvas courses with ease!

Presenter: Raji Sundar

Did you know there are several new design and usability enhancements you can enable in your courses? It’s likely you use most or all the tools that have recently been upgraded, but in order to benefit from these changes, you’ll need to enable them manually in your courses. In this session, we will quickly enable these features in one of your course shells before reviewing the new features and then exploring the tools together.

Presenter: George Rowe

Flip is a fantastic video recording tool for capturing students’ voices and short lecture recordings (10 minutes or less). We will do an introduction to the tool itself and the benefits of integration within Canvas. I will also share examples from my own courses.

Presenter: Amilee Roberge

Panopto is a web-based video recording, editing, and publishing platform that all BC faculty can use. You can record your synchronous Zoom classes and have them automatically appear in your Canvas class. You can publish short lectures or lessons and include inline quizzes, whose scores can go into the Canvas Gradebook. You can add a Table of Contents so that students can quickly browse through your video.

In this informational presentation, several Panopto features will be demonstrated. To prepare, participants should enable “Panopto Recordings” in one of their Canvas classes.

Presenter: Keith Rowley

You can use Accordions, Tabs, or Expanders to break up large amounts of text (reduce cognitive overload), categorize information (support critical thinking), or create more engagement with the material. Learn how to use Design Tools by Cidi Labs to add these elements to your Canvas Pages, Assignments, or Discussions. Stay a few minutes extra to practice using the tool and designing one of these elements in Canvas.

Presenter: Elizabeth Zahrt Geib

Are your students getting the best video viewing experience in Canvas? There are numerous ways to embed third-party content with the Canvas content editor, but some methods have better results than others when it comes to overall experience and accessibility. In this workshop, we will review different methods, compare the pros and cons of each, and provide tips for embedding video and other content in your Canvas courses.

Presenter: George Rowe

In this workshop, we will explore ways to add a personal flair to our course content by developing branching scenarios within Canvas. This is an excellent way to gamify a module or to present lecture material in a more interactive format. 

There’s no need for Cidi Labs on this project. We can do all the work in the Canvas editor.

Presenter: Ron Austin
