Canvas Student Survey Results
Butler students were asked to complete a Canvas survey - one for online/blended courses and another for face-2-face courses. Of 196 respondents in the face-2-face survey, 184 students reported that they find Canvas to be a valuable resource. This is an encouraging statistic and should provide incentive for those instructors not using Canvas to get on board. The vast majority of students commented that Canvas is easy to use and navigate. You can view the face-2-face course survey results at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7C2ruFKXQKpcllBQ2lfaDUtNkE/view?usp=sharing. View the online course survey is at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7C2ruFKXQKpcllBQ2lfaDUtNkE/view?usp=sharing. The surveys provide interesting reading.
We added all of the new adjuncts to this course, along with any instructors who have not completed Canvas training. I called and emailed each adjunct to welcome them to Butler and explain how to get started in Canvas. Of course, I had to leave a message for some but was able to speak to ten of them, resetting passwords, etc. as needed. Hopefully, this will help these adjuncts get of to a successful start at Butler.
