Learning Management Systems: Blackboard & Canvas

Used to host and deliver educational content and courses.

More Info
  • Allow retakes to support mastery of course content: create multiple versions of each test (students can retake an exam several times with different questions gathered from questions pools and random blocks)

  • Teach students at different levels: Can pre-populate course content so students at different learning objectives can access their relevant content. Students can create their own learning experience as they master content to meet specific learning objectives

  • Prepare quizzes at different levels in advance: once students reach a level of mastery and want to take a test, they can find the assessment for the learning objective they want to attempt.

  • Structure the learning path using Canvas Module with pre-requisite and requirements to set the essential objectives/activities to move on the next learning.

  • Learning Management Systems allows to create a repository of assessments and rubrics that can be easily accessed and shared with different faculty and to customize them to meet their needs.

  • Show students their progress of learning and achievement via Grades

  • Allows instructor to track student progress and token students earn (if uses token options) via Grades
