Pre-Recorded Presentation/Live Q&A via Zoom

Two of the major complaints that individuals express when using Canvas is the limited control faculty have over the look and theme of the course, and the time it takes to configure and fill a course site. Although there is no shortcut to good course design, DesignPlus Tools are a course authoring toolset that can be utilized from within the Canvas interface to help address these challenges. The tools can provide additional design functionality as well as improving course accessibility and efficiency in your course development by utilizing templates and various tool sets.

What can you do with Design Tools?



This is a flipped online workshop requiring some preparatory steps followed by a Zoom discussion. The video provides a quick overview of the 2-part workshop.


  • Complete activities prior to the live session: We invite you to familiarize yourselves with the more advanced design functional options available in Canvas using the Design Tools interface, and practice using the tools on a page in Canvas, prior to the August 25 session.
  • Live session: The August 25 live session will provide an opportunity for open Q&A and discussion. The workshop facilitator will not be giving a presentation at that time. In order to get the most out of the live session, you must complete the asynchronous activities ahead of time.
