USU Design Tools

USU Design Tools (created by USU's Center for Innovative Design and Instruction (CIDI)) is an LTI tool for Canvas that provides an easy way to build out the module structure of a course including quizzes, discussions, assignments, syllabus, themes, and template pages. It significantly reduces the time it takes instructional designers or instructors to complete these tasks.
 
Many other colleges, universities and school districts have implemented the tools or are in various stages of the installation and evaluation process. Version 2 software is open source and available on the CIDI Github site. CIDI is currently working on a Version 3 of USU Design Tools that will improve the tool's usability, integration with Canvas, feature packaging, and some additional new features.
