After receiving feedback from one of my colleagues as well as an instructor for my course, I’ve revised my CMS Assessment 2.0 to reflect their suggestions. I chose to use Canvas for this assignment because of the ease of creating different question types within the same assessment. I like that I could ask students to complete several different tasks and that my feedback to them can be more than just a few typed sentences. I also really enjoyed that even as a novice user, it was fairly straightforward to jump right in and get started. If I were to design a course from the ground up, I’d definitely use Canvas for it! I’m currently enrolled in a Canvas course for my Professional Learning Community in my teacher-life, and from the student perspective, it has been easy to navigate and figure out.
