Anne Goodwin – Advising “Courses”: Using LMS Tools for Advising
Challenges of engaging online and on-campus students with the advising process and the campus community can be partially addressed using tools available through learning management systems. The Biology Dept. at the Mass. College of Liberal Arts has established Canvas pages for the department and for individual academic advisors. These sites facilitate distribution of information, promote the use of interactive advising documents, allow for student discussions, and document advising conversations.
