Access, Equity, Outcomes with Canvas Learning Management System

Session 5: 1:00-2:30 PM (Thursday March 03, 2022)



Asynchronous, synchronous, hybrid, blended, distance, and in-person are just some of the types of learning your programs may be offering students this year. It’s definitely not life as we knew it; instead, these types of learning are inviting us to reengineer how we engage with and help students to meet their academic, career, and life goals. The pandemic has presented an opportunity to rethink how we address the needs of each learner and educator. OTAN and CAEP TAP have partnered with Instructure to help districts provide equitable access to distance, blended, and in-person learning through the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS). We titled the partnership California Distance Learning Cooperative (CDLC) and our vision is to include all adult education agencies across the state in the CDLC, making access, equity, outcomes, and alignment with our community colleges much more of a reality. Come find how OTAN/CAEP TAP can assist you in making this positive change for your students.
