Canvas theme sessions: inspiration sessions on educational tools

Published on 23 Mar 2021

What do you want your students to achieve in your course? What teaching and learning activities suit these intended learning outcomes? And how to facilitate this making use of Canvas and other tools for education?

Tools to support your education

In addition to hosting the digital learning environment (Canvas), the library offers several other tools you can choose to support your education. Examples are TestVision and Proctorio for digital and online assessment, Wooclap for interaction with your students during (online) meetings and FeedbackFruits for peer feedback and interaction around documents and videos.


Only 30 minutes of your time

To make you acquainted with these tools and how to embed them in your course, we offer bite-size webinars on several topics. We start with a presentation in which we address didactics, best practices, guidelines, and the best workflow for each tool. In a Q&A session we connect to your educational practice.

No time to attend? Don’t worry! You can watch a recording on a dedicated Mediasite channel.
