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.
