Join CATL for a presentation and Q&A session Friday, August 20 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. We’ll be covering the advanced and sometimes “hidden” editing features in Canvas pages, syllabi, assignments, and other areas of Canvas where the Rich Content Editor can be found. We’ll cover layouts, tables, buttons, callouts, linking within and between pages, and doing more with images.
This is a great topic for those who wish to freshen up the overall look and feel of their Canvas site, incorporate new or improved banner images, want to make their content more accessible, are building liquid syllabi, or just want to see more of what Canvas can do!
Learn how to make your course more accessible using Canvas tools (Pages Accessibility Checker) and integrations (automatic, machine–generated captions with Kaltura; UDOIT Accessibility Checker). There will be time at the end of the session for a short Q & A on these tools and general accessibility questions.
Here are the times for our presentation on accessibility in Canvas:
CATL staff will briefly demonstrate using the VoiceThread assignment builder for creating “watch,” “comment,” and “create” assignments. This is intended to be a workshop, so please come with ideas, fully designed assignments with which we can tinker, or past snafus you might wish to address.
A banner is a decorative image placed at the top (or bottom) of a page. In Canvas, banners often display the name of the course, the topic of the module, and some relevant imagery. Besides creating visual structure, they also add a bit of color and personality to pages.
In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of creating banners with Canva, a free online tool for creating graphics. Attendees will also learn some basic tips on graphic design and web accessibility that they can apply in their own Canvas courses.
