The purpose of this session is to demonstrate how librarians can leverage the power of a learning management system to engage their stakeholders, including students, parents, and teachers. I will share how to create, organize, and promote courses. I will also teach attendees about tools that can be used to create content for their courses. I will demonstrate how to integrate external content with tools such as Flipgrid, Nearpod, and Badgr and show how these tools promote student engagement. My district uses Canvas; however, many if not all of the ideas shared in this presentation will be easily adaptable to other learning management systems.
