New Options in Canvas for Language Courses
VoiceThread is a media player with an interactive discussion space that allows students to create comments, upload files and media, and interact with one another.
Extempore allows instructors to obtain and assess authentic speech without having to schedule face to-face time with each student. Instructors can now create an activity on the Extempore website, selecting a set of parameters for each question, depending on the learning objectives. When configuring a final exam or any other form of summative assessment, for example, the teacher may limit the time the student has between reviewing the prompt and answering the question. The Extempore app also allows the instructor to decide whether students can re-record their answers. For practice assignments or for any other form of formative assessment, on the other hand, timing restrictions can be more flexible.
