Recently I tweeted about efforts to further align my Grav and Docsify Open Course projects, keeping their unique strengths while sharing core features, and I thought I would share them here:
In the past few weeks a lot of progress has been made to align the key features of my @getgrav Open Course Hub and https://t.co/Cj7y22iLmY projects, as can be seen below with seamlessly embedding content from both projects into the #CanvasLMS👇🏼 January 4, 2021
Recently I tweeted about how the new Grav 1.7 user management features could be configured to support multiple editors for the Grav Open MultiCourse Hub, and I thought I would share them here:
So, how could the new @getgrav 1.7 user management feature be setup for multiple editors for my Grav Open MultiCourse Hub, so each user can have editing access to one or more courses? Below is sample MultiCourse Hub with three different courses (CPT363-1, CPT363-2 and CPT363-3)👇🏼 January 4, 2021
Recently I tweeted about some highlights of the most recent Grav releases (Grav 1.7 and Grav Premium components) and my open source project Grav Open MultiCourse Hub, and I thought I would share them here:

Sneak peek at a first outline for a new presentation I might be giving about my current content prototyping methods… trying out @NotionHQ for both this outline and as a new alternative to creating super-quick Web page content prototypes🚀 https://t.co/ovJOFcPxZs— Hibbitts Design (@hibbittsdesign) January 4, 2021
Well, that didn’t take long for plans to change… unexpectedly I have been asked to teach CMPT-363 once again spring so I am now heads-down in planning the course while considering what I learned from my students in the second fully online CMPT-363 this past fall at SFU. Some key changes will include trying a student open mic Q & A, a new weekly review quiz tutorial, a new term project, more frequent session mini-breaks, and a somewhat revised approach to the student-generated final exam.Continue Reading
Recently I tweeted about my new student well-being heuristics with a simple example of them at work, and I thought I would share them here:

Wow, it’s been a while since I last posted something here… I’ve been full-steam ahead learning from my students in the first fully online CMPT-363 this summer at SFU.
While not originally planned, I am very excited to teach CMPT 363 User Interface Design once again this fall. I’ve already been working on some structural course changes based on feedback from this summer’s students, and more still to do.
I can’t wait to connect with my new students in September, but in the meantime I will try to sneak in the last bit of summer🙂
I hope that you are safe and keeping connected with those you care about in these emotionally and physically challenging times.
With all SFU courses moving online this summer I decided to apply to teach CMPT 363 User Interface Design several weeks ago, and just this week learned that the additional section of the course would go ahead. For students not in other Canvas LMS courses a multi-device site with Canvas links is available, and for students in other Canvas courses content is seamlessly embedded into Canvas.
I am really looking forward to learning with my students once again!
