THE QA APPRENTICESHIPS CASE STUDY

EASE OF USE

Make it simple

Canvas was designed to get technology out of your way, so you can focus on the content. For tutors, that means creating a more student-centred learning experience with less time and effort. For students of all ages and technical abilities, it means engaging with course materials through a centralised learning hub that’s clean, intuitive and easy to navigate.

ADOPTABILITY

Get buy-in from staff

Being radically easy to use makes Canvas that much easier for tutors to adopt. Technology that’s too complicated doesn’t get adopted (or used widely throughout the institution). And if it doesn’t get used, what’s the point? That’s why Canvas, which is known for its simplicity and an unparalleled Customer Success team, is adopted faster than any other VLE.

MOBILE ACCESS

Teach and learn anytime, anywhere

As a cloud native platform, Canvas is available 24/7 from any web-enabled device. It gives tutors and students the tools they need—whenever they need them and wherever they are—to engage with course content and with each other. This flexibility empowers students to take control of their learning, whether it’s in the classroom, online or on the job.

SPEEDY MARKING

Save time and effort

Instead of downloading student work for marking, then uploading it again with feedback, tutors can streamline their workflow with the Canvas SpeedGrader. It provides tools for marking, annotating and providing feedback in one window. And students can follow their progress in the Learning Mastery Gradebook, which is linked to rubrics and outcomes.

AUTOMATED TASKS

Simplify course management

Repetition has its place in the learning process, but who needs practice rescheduling due dates? When you create or update an assignment in Canvas, it automatically populates the syllabus, gradebook and calendar, so you can maximise your time by minimising repetitive tasks. Use the time you save on administration to engage more with students.
