I recently attended the International Society of Exploring Teaching & Learning (ISETL) Conference in New Orleans where I attended a presentation that I felt was enlightening.

At the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College, J.A.

In this presentation, they shared the most helpful things faculty can do to improve the student experience in Canvas based on the data they collected.

Overall, the findings were positive and suggested that students like Canvas and want to continue to use it. They find Canvas easy to navigate and are satisfied with this learning management system.
