Serving Up Student Online Success Via Canvas Catalog

Concurrent Session 7

Session Materials

Brief Abstract

At the University of Maryland – College Park, undergraduate and graduate student performance in online courses was below expectations.  Students were perceived as not have the skills needed for learning online. The Division of Information Technology’s Learning Technology Design group was approached by an online graduate program in the School of Public Health about developing a course or module related to online student success. The Online Student Success Orientation (OSSO), was born.

This OSSO course was designed using the ADDIE model, based on the Canvas platform.  Canvas Catalog was selected as the mode of delivery for the OSSO course. In this presentation, I will discuss the process used to design and develop the OSSO course, Canvas tools and features used, and advantages to delivering the course via Canvas Catalog.  Lastly, data from the OSSO course will be presented.
