Use AI to Author Better Outcomes - Right In Canvas

eLumen is excited to announce a new AI feature in Canvas! We’ve added the AI-driven Insights Quality Check for Canvas Outcomes - and it’s free for all Canvas Outcomes users! This powerful feature enables instructional designers and faculty who are writing or editing outcomes to quality check the outcome using generative AI directly in the Canvas Outcomes rich content editor. 

Insights Quality Check for Canvas Outcomes checks the outcome against standard models like Bloom’s taxonomy and the expected knowledge in the domain, identifies common errors in the learning outcome authoring, and recommends a better expression of your learning outcome based on your institution’s outcome quality configuration. 

For example, the tool may recommend replacing the word “learn” in an outcome with “demonstrate understanding” to align with the comprehension level in Bloom’s Taxonomy. Insights always provides an explanation for the change—and leaves it entirely up to the author whether to accept, modify, or reject the recommendation. eLumen believes that the use of AI tools should be optional, come with some form of “show your work” user experience, and have the ability to reject the recommendation.

Insights on your Learning Outcome

This AI-driven tool uses GPT-4, which is generative AI. This kind of AI learns the patterns and structures in training data to create new data that resembles the training data. This quality tool is one of the native features of Insights for Canvas Outcomes that helps institutions improve instruction and ease the workflow for faculty and staff. eLumen is excited to make it available to all Canvas customers. 

To see a short video of this new tool in action, or to sign up to be one of the first to try the Insights Quality Check for Canvas Outcomes, visit the Outcomes Insights page on the Emerging AI Marketplace.

If you’re interested in learning more about Insights for Canvas Outcomes, contact your Canvas CSM, visit our website, or request a demo of Insights. And if your institution has not yet enabled Canvas outcomes, please talk with your Canvas CSM about turning it on. It’s the first step towards creating a culture of continuous improvement and transparent student learning at your institution!
