"Virtual Learning Environment"


This Video accompanies a Train the Trainer module delivered on the Canvas Learning Management System. Said another way, current Canvas users who are preparing to become future educators learn the first step in creating their own online course within a familiar environment.


I incorporated New American Lecture (NAL) by applying a hook (benefit to the learner), memorable structure (1-2-3), and dual coding (voice, text, visual, animation). To further support the NAL strategy, the video is accompanied by a prompt to “create an account today” to encourage the trainer to begin assembling their tool belt. Lastly, the constraint of teaching a topic under 90 seconds was applied.


This project was developed using PowerPoint and Camtasia, published as MP4, uploaded to YouTube and embedded on a Canvas page.
