Getting Started with Twig Science Next Gen and Canvas

Twig Science Next Gen with Twig Distance Learning has been carefully designed to give teachers flexible tools to adapt to hybrid, synchronous, or asynchronous environments. 

We wanted to make it as easy as possible for teachers to integrate the program into their preferred ways of working. We know how hard it can be in this time to have to learn and relearn whole new ways of achieving the same things. The Twig Science Next Gen platform can be used as a standalone solution, but we’ve also made it straightforward to develop courses and assign lessons and assignments using your existing Learning Management System (LMS).

Canvas is a very popular LMS, so we’ve chosen this to demonstrate how easy it is to use with Twig Science Next Gen. Below you’ll find links to video guides to successfully combining Twig Science Next Gen and Canvas. We hope you find them useful!

All of these tasks can be just as easily performed whichever LMS you use. Get in touch with us if you would like a guide to using Twig Science Next Gen with your LMS.

1. Constructing Canvas Courses

How to make your courses as simple and easy to navigate as possible.

2. Designing Micro-Lesson Chunks

Why it is important to construct courses using bite-sized chunks, especially when your students are doing a lot of their learning online.

3. Creating Exciting Assignments

Some tips on developing genuinely engaging assignments.

4. Using Multiple Assignment Types

Keep it interesting for students by changing up your assignment approaches.

5. Assessing Student Understanding

Three-dimensional assessment provides opportunities for assessment that students actually enjoy. Here’s how you can make the most of this.
