Try Folio, the new ePortfolio tool
The new Canvas ePortfolio tool, Folio, allows students to put together a free form ePortfolio to showcase their class work and professional experiences. The results can be shared on social media sites like LinkedIn, appear as part of a capstone project or help demonstrate experience to potential employers. Access Folio through your Canvas account page.
To learn more about the benefits of ePortfolios, read our blog post, ePortfolios: The What, Why, and How! To find out more about Folio, visit Teaching Tools, or reach out to us via email.

Sprint Ahead Professional Development for Faculty
We are excited to announce a new self-paced professional development opportunity: Sprint Ahead: Online Faculty Development Certificate.
Earn badges in three key areas — design, assessment and community — with the completion of 10 focused independent learning “sprints.” Each sprint covers the latest research and pedagogy for specific topics and asks participants to design course materials that align with these best practices with one-on-one support from our Missouri Online designers.
Note: We are in the process of reviewing our Online Teaching Certification & Recertification Seminars and hope to include these sprints as an option for interested instructors in the future as an alternate route to recertification.
Enroll in these sprints today through our Teaching Catalog. Questions? Contact us via email.
Missouri Online was created to support digital education and encourage significant enrollment growth in online programs across our four universities. Our team of instructional designers and developers, learning technologists, student services professionals, program coordinators and marketing specialists are here to assist you.
