Recognisable and unified structure is important for students
It is easier for the students if the structure is recognisable and they know where they can find the course material. A clear structure in the course room is something that both students and student representatives at KTH often presents when it comes to factors that benefit learning and studies.
A recommendation is that you as a teacher use the existing templates for KTH Canvas rooms. They have a unified structure for where and how you publish your course content. You don’t have to build everything from scratch.
In the recommendations section you will find among others:
- Checklists for course design in Canvas , that integrates E-learnings recommendations.
- KTH's templates for Canvas rooms . The templates are continuously being developed and expanded upon.
