Since RMIT has doubled down on online learning and consistent Canvas usage, they've seen a significant increase in student engagement. Between March 2020 and August 2020 alone, the institution saw a 1,500% increase in online student participation.
To further engagement in virtual settings and provide opportunities for connection, RMIT students use Canvas Studio to record and view interactive video content. Since the transition to fully online learning, Studio usage has increased 107% among students.
In addition to enhancing the student experience, Canvas has provided educators at RMIT with an opportunity to rethink their pedagogical practices. RMIT has expanded its assessment strategy with a focus on distributing authentic, formative assessments that drive learning, rather than the high-stakes, in-person assessments that were previously distributed.
