Spotlight on 10-10-10: Communication That Matters

Enhance Interaction in Your Online Course
This week, the California Community Board of Governors convened at Southwestern College. On the agenda was approval of revisions to Title 5 of the California Ed Code. These revisions underscore the importance of regular effective contact between teachers and students, and between students. When teaching online, our course design, as emphasized in Section B of the CVC-OEI Course Design Rubric, is an integral part of supporting this interaction.

@ONE’s course, 10-10-10: Communication That Matters, focuses on student-to-student and teacher-to-student interaction by walking you through the first ten minutes, ten hours, and ten days of your course from the student’s perspective.

In this course, you’ll work with a cohort of your peers to assess your Canvas course–from the home page to assignment and discussion design–looking at concrete ways to improve your course design, enhance student engagement, and create a learning community. Register now for 10-10-10–the next course begins Monday, September 24.

Spotlight on Digital Citizenship
Prepare Your Students for the Digital Era

What does it mean to be a good citizen in a digital society? Why is it important for educators to cultivate a digital presence and encourage students to participate in the public web? How do online courses create opportunities for enhancing our understanding of 21st century skills?

Kristin Smith, faculty at City College of San Francisco, had the opportunity to explore these provocative questions as a participant in the new @ONE Digital Citizenship course. Read Kristin’s reflections in this @ONE blog post and consider why digital citizenship is a core skill for 21st century educators.

Ready to explore your own digital citizenship? Register now for the next offering, which starts Monday, September 24.

Join the CCC Canvas Home Base!

Dear Instructors,

Heard about the Canvas Community yet? (Even if you have, keep reading because there’s something new!)

The Community is THE place to go to find answers, share ideas and connect with other like-minded educators around using Canvas most effectively.

There’s even a CCC Canvas Community within the larger community just for us! Our CCC Community has been newly redesigned as our Canvas Home Base to make it a more powerful, streamlined gateway to the plethora of Canvas resources available to you.

We’d love to use this as a primary way to connect the whole state so we can leverage all the passion and innovation we’ve got going on in our CCC system around Canvas!

In order to do that, we need you to join the group. It’s easy to do and doesn’t cost a dime.

Join the CCC Canvas Home Base!

Our Home Base is publicly viewable, but you will need to “Join” to participate and be notified about new content and events (which is what makes it fun).

1.  Go to https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/ccc

2.  Ensure you have created a Community Profile. See How do I log into the Community with my Canvas Account?

3.  Use the “Actions” menu to Join the group!

Once you’re part of the CCC Canvas Home Base, you can add your voice by responding to the Can-Curious Question of the Month (or post an introduction or submit a feature request or join a discussion or . . .).

See you there!

P.S. We want to encourage everyone to get in the habit of tagging your posts and feature ideas with #CCC. Makes it easy for all of us to find things related to CCCs.
