ABC is a very practical curriculum / course development method, originating in UCL and used successfully in Universities worldwide (including Swansea). The method has a strong foundation in learning theory and can produce dramatic and powerful results in a short space of time. Both online and (virus permitting) face to face workshops are run at Swansea and here you can find information on these and a wide range of resources.

Some possible replacements for unseen, time-constrained, face-to-face invigilated exams. Professor Kay Sambell, Edinburgh Napier University and Professor Sally Brown, Independent consultant.
Targetted and informative document which considers both emergency plans for unseen, time-constrained, invigilated exams to be undertaken remotely and other assessments that are normally undertaken on-site but which couldn’t be held due to lockdown. Whilst the emergency planning phase is now over, this still offers solutions which could be applied for future planning. The aim of the document is to help those who are currently planning for a phased, socially-distanced and gradual return to campus. It includes a comparative table of pros and cons of alternative forms of assessment.
This resource can be found within the CPD-Canvas Studio course. It provides a screenshot and video giving a very brief overview of the analytics that are available for media that resides in Canvas studio. Canvas Studio analytics are called ‘Insights’ as they give an insight into how videos are performing, right down to the individual level. This resource is intentionally basic and more information on Canvas Studio analytics can be found in this Canvas Guide (https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-9687-50736657095). It is also worth pointing out some limitations of Canvas Studio Insights that have been raised here (https://community.canvaslms.com/thread/37887-improvements-to-studio-insights-needed) by a Canvas community member.
