NWeLearn 2019 has ended
Welcome to NWeLearn 2019! We are excited about his annual event. Here is some housekeeping information to navigate the event:
  • The conference is hosted in the Convention Center, a separate building next to the Riverhouse Hotel. You can walk there from the hotel by taking one of the paths that go under MT Washington Drive or drive directly there.
  • The Convention Center has two levels. Meals and main sessions will be held in the lower level and the breakout sessions will be held in the main or 1st floor.
  • Restrooms are in the 1st Floor across from Cascadia B.
  • The Thursday night, Networking & Hors D’oeuvres, will be held right after the last Thursday breakout session in the main entrance space by the fireplace on the 1st floor.
Feel free to ask any questions, post your experiences in the Slack Community site, nwelearn.slack.com, and upload your pictures to the NWeLearn Conference 2019 Google Photos site.

Canvas is great and all, but sometimes I just can't get it to do what I would like it to. Submit a ticket to make the grade-book more student-friendly, for example? Sure... but waiting? No, thank you. In this session, I will share how I have used Google Docs and Weebly to create an online Canvas course that goes beyond the Canvas shell to solve my problems and perhaps yours. With Canvas as home base, a course website hosted elsewhere, and a variety of Google Docs and Slides in the mix, I still have much room for improvement, but students seem to be enjoying the course space. So, it's time to share and see what you think, too.
