Course Requirements

CANVAS Course Structure

You are required to have the ASUB approved Home Page found in Canvas Commons.  The Modules should be clear and concise.  Content should be organized, contain descriptive titles, and should be current (click the image below to view).  Older materials (such as previous semester syllabi, schedules, etc.), should be deleted or made unavailable to students.  You should include Module Level Objectives for each Module in a Module Overview Page (click the image below to view).  You can find several templates that the Distance Education office has provided in Canvas Commons.  Follow the Canvas Course Checklist each term.

Tip: Since your online students do not have the opportunity to see you face-to-face, creating an introduction video to introduce yourself, the course, and how to navigate is a great thing to add to your Home Page.  Your video should be one - two minutes.

Copyright and Fair Use

Ultimately, it is your responsibility to decide if the content you use falls under fair use.  Resource for evaluating Fair Use.

ADA Compliant

All of the content you create in Canvas must be ADA compliant.  Just keep in mind that your course work must be accessible to all, which includes students with accommodations for disabilities.  Images/graphics must have alternate text provided when inserted (easy to do).  Video and audio files must be closed captioned or have a script provided.  If you create your own videos using YouTube, closed captioning (CC) will automatically be created and can be edited.  If created by others, you must make sure it is provided and the wording matches what is spoken.
