Blog Index / February 18, 2017

In all the busy-ness of the past couple of weeks, I forgot to do an Index post last week. And now… I am indexing not just this blog, but also my Twitter4Canvas blog and CanvasLIVE Playground blogs. I am clearly having too much fun with this! 🙂

The posts new to this index are marked in bold, and there are also “latest posts” from all three blogs in the sidebar.

Blog Index / February 6, 2017

Welcome to the fifth Blog Index post of 2017! My focus this past week was adding new ready-to-use Twitter4Canvas widgets, which was so much fun. This coming week, I’ll be brainstorming some ways to share some of these materials in a way that will make sense for CanvasLIVE! 🙂

This week’s posts are in bold up towards the top of the index; I don’t have as many new posts here because I have been focusing on those ready-to-use Twitter widgets, which you can see here: Ready-To-Use Twitter4Canvas.

Blog Index / January 30, 2017

Welcome to the fourth Blog Index post of 2017! This weekend I really focused on finishing up the tutorials at the Twitter4Canvas project, and I am really happy about how that is going. I will have to write up a post about that tomorrow. 🙂

Blog Index / January 22, 2017

Welcome to the third Blog Index post of 2017! Week 1 in my classes went wonderfully, and I also came up with an exciting new Canvas project: a mini-course in using Twitter with Canvas. Details below.

Blog Index / 2016 Round-Up

I’ll probably be blogging only a little and perhaps not at all in the coming two weeks, so I decided to do another blog index post to let stand as the 2016 Round-Up. I’ll see you back here in 2017!

I also have to say that I’m very pleased at how this turned out: I started blogging here in Week 10 of the semester, and it’s been a big help to me in reflecting on the semester and getting ready for Spring. Even better: next semester, I’ll have a blog in place right from the start to report on how things are going and brainstorm about how to make things go even better! 🙂

  • Student Tech Support for Canvas. Based on student feedback, these are the Canvas features I am supporting and promoting: Calendar, Notifications, Profile, and Mobile App.
  • Student Voices about Canvas. These are the results of my Fall 2016 mid-semester student survey, with lots of advice from students for instructors using Canvas.
  • Time Management Brainstorms. I got some big ideas from an ILED studio session on helping students with time management.
