The Instructional Design team at the University of San Francisco designed and implemented a standardized Canvas Template to create unique branding for each of our schools, as well as provide a cohesive and intuitive user interface for students.

Leveraging custom Cascading Style Sheet and html coding, our designers have been able to bring in attractive visual design layouts to make course content more interesting and engaging.

Grounded in effective user experience design principles, the USF Canvas template has also evolved into an efficient and effective method to deploy instructional design best practices for online and hybrid courses, including Universal Design for Learning and accessible design.
