This guide provides guidance and resources for Guilford College Faculty teaching online classes.

Creating Online Assignments & Assessments

In Canvas

If you would like to test things out or create content in an empty course that does not have any students in it, do not hesitate to request a sandbox shell where you can start designing your next course or just experiment with Canvas. When you email Garrett Collins, please include course information, if applicable, in your request (e.g., ENGL 400 Literature and Ethics).

See this blog post on "Alternative Assessments in Canvas" for great alternatives for various assignment types, including journals, video & audio responses, collaborative writing, peer reviews, and more. Please note that some of the tools recommended are ones that live outside of Canvas, and some are tools Guilford does not have access to in Canvas.
