Adapted from work of CanvasNet, Newton-Conover City Schools’ Instructional Technology department has created a new support document for you to use as a roadmap to guide your digital learning efforts, dubbed the Canvas Standards for Instructional Design.
While teachers in Newton-Conover will not be required to use these this school year, using these standards when designing learning in Canvas is a lock-step method to ensure that any course you create online flows smoothly for both you, as the teacher, as well as your students. Addressing everything from routine announcements and a welcome page, to building robust and sequential content for your students, these standards will take the headache out of designing a quality online or blended Canvas course for your students. They will also continue to evolve and improve as they are piloted this school year.
