Part 6: Fall 2017 Labs

77 Wayfinding and the Canvas Homepage with Lane Sunwall — 09.22.2017

In the September 22, 2017 Active Teaching Lab, Lane Sunwall  shared tips and tricks to keeping students on track in Canvas.


  • Modules? Pages? Quizzes? There is no one right way to organize all courses.
  • Participants learned strategies to help them develop the best organizational approaches for their individual courses.
  • Experimenters brought their laptops or mobile devices to get hands-on experience with Canvas tools as a student and created a Sandbox course to work with the tools as an instructor.
  • View the session’s activity sheet for additional support materials.

Check out the session’s activity sheet and follow along with Lane’s slides for more information.
