Educational Technology Workshop: Introduction to Ed Discussion

Event Description 

Ed Discussion is a quick and easy tool for class Q&A with superior functionality and usability.

There’s seamless integration with Canvas through LTI, and Ed Discussion can also be used standalone. Instructors save considerable time compared to traditional email and forums.

  • Less direct emails being sent to staff.
  • Fewer duplicate questions being asked.
  • Students often answer each other’s questions.
  • Questions can reach and benefit the whole class.
  • Students like the modern user interface and excellent usability.
  • Higher quality questions and less back and forth with thread templates.
  • Easier to express ideas with equations, runnable code, annotations, and more.

This workshop session will take 30 mins with additional time for Q&A.
