|Year 1: Summary|
We will create an online “study space” for Physics 118 on the Canvas LMS. This will be a weekly module with three main pages targeted at:
The study space for PHYS 118 will complement the ‘flipped format’ of the course and its resources, such as the open textbook and the commercial pre-lecture/homework system (flipitphysics.com).
Since this is a standard introductory course in Electricity and Magnetism, concept tests and surveys are available to measure the outcome of this project. We also envision using learning analytics to measure students’ usage of the study space.
If successful, the Canvas-based format and the main ideas in area (1) could also be used in other courses.

|Year 2: Summary|
The project supports students’ engagement in self-regulated learning and strategic studying in three areas:
1. In-class activities that promote task interpretation will be the main priority of the project. These activities will be added to our in-class worksheets. We hope that regular engagement with task interpretation will provide students with strategies that will also help them during homework and exams.
2. We will create a weekly “study space” module for PHYS 118 on Canvas that will:
3. We are currently implementing forward-facing feedback following tests and exams in the Vantage sections of PHYS 117. The approach will also be used in PHYS 118.
