Bilingual Translations in Canvas

Bilingual Translations in Canvas
California State University, Channel Islands
Kristin Jordan, Instructor from California State University Channel Islands, implemented bilingual translations in Canvas for a Sociology of Education course where information on the Canvas home page, in the welcome/start here module, and major headings/buttons are presented in both English and Spanish. This initiative ensures that information displayed on the Canvas home page, within the welcome/start here module, and major headings/buttons is accessible in both English and Spanish. By providing simultaneous translations, students gain direct exposure to essential concepts and research covered in the course, such as community cultural wealth, linguistic capital, and bilingual education. Additionally, this approach fosters a more inclusive environment, both linguistically and culturally, within our class. Importantly, the adaptability of these bilingual translations makes them applicable to various courses, regardless of content alignment.
