Arc provides users with asset management tools as well as analytics about how users interact with media. Session attendees learn how to import and publish media, create Arc assignments and provide feedback, and discuss best practices for tool use.

Canvas Grading and Rubrics
In this workshop, instructors learn about options for using the Canvas Gradebook. Best practices for providing feedback on assignments and quizzes are covered, as well as creating, editing, and attaching Rubrics to assignments in Canvas.

 

Tools for Student Engagement
