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.

California State University, Channel Islands
Elizabeth A. Sowers, an Associate Professor at CSU Channel Islands, created an interactive PlayPosit video for her SOC 100 class to help students achieve a better understanding of the “Sociological Imagination” across the semester. The video includes a recap of the concept, as previously discussed in class, and practice questions, quite similar to those that appear on course exams. This is a resource for students, not an assignment for a grade – but they will practice exam questions in it, so there is a tangible benefit for those who engage.

Ratios for Case Analysis using Voice Thread
California State University, Dominguez Hills
Chacko Kannothra, Instructor from California State University Dominguez Hills, created a voice thread assignment to help online learners to revise financial and accounting ratios that may be used for case analysis in the strategic management capstone course. The assignment requires students to watch a voice thread (external video) and answer questions provided with the voice thread. Students can submit their responses in multiple formats including audio, video, text, or even upload a file with their responses. This voice thread can be assigned at the beginning of the semester to revisit some of the concepts that students learned in earlier semesters, and used extensively in the capstone course for analysis. Please note that the external video used for this voice thread was recorded by Prof. Melissa Schilling and is available on YouTube.
