Canvas, the leading LMS in higher-ed in the U.S., has created a toolkit to help educators to transition to online learning amidst the COVID-19 crisis.
In addition, it launched Teams with Microsoft to connect through virtual meetings.
Among the tips, Canvas LMS suggests to use course discussion and messaging to continue the conversation, along with the mobile apps for push notifications and anytime anywhere access.
In addition to Canvas’s features such as Commons, Folio, and Studio, other recommendations point to leverage live video and conferencing promotional capabilities offered by partners. In particular, these two:
• G Suite for Education’s Hangouts Meet features, like larger meetings (up to 250 participants), live streaming, and recording.
• Zoom‘s lift of the 40-minute time limit on Free Basic accounts for schools affected by the Coronavirus.
