Snapchat Takaways – When Snapchat first started, users could only record snaps that were about 10 seconds long. Because many of our modern students use snapchat in their personal lives, teachers have started using Snapchat like video takaways for assignments. This can be used before or after class. Basically, students are asked to submit an answer to a question, but they are limited to approximately 10 seconds. Students can use the canvas app or their smartphones to upload their ideas.

Wiki’ly Spotlights – Assign students to curate/create content, edit, and post Wiki’ly Spotlights on content that you are teaching. Students can work alone or in teams, and you can make the content available for other students to view. Learn more about wikis and collaborations in Canvas
