Canvas Baseline

Learning & Teaching Podcast Now Available - Episode 031: Learning & Teaching Conference

Canvas Baseline

The Newcastle University Canvas Baseline sets out the minimum core requirements expected on all University modules within the centrally supported Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

The Canvas Baseline ensures that the University provides students on taught programmes with a core set of materials. These include programme related information and information about learning, assessment and skills for each module. It has been designed to:

  • establish a degree of consistency across University modules (Canvas “courses”)
  • provide clear guidance regarding the availability of information and teaching resources provided via Canvas
  • establish a baseline against which modules can be developed and offer guidance on ways colleagues can enhance student engagement with learning through Canvas
