We will offer all in-person training sessions in Snyder 143. Since Snyder 143 is not a computer lab, you need to bring a laptop to attend the training sessions. If you do not have access to a laptop, we have a couple of Windows laptops and several Macbooks available for you to use.
There are two series of training sessions available. Canvas Basics training session is required for all faculty to attend before they teach courses in Canvas. Canvas Basics training session will cover topics including importing courses from Blackboard to Canvas, using syllabus template in Canvas, setting up modules, using assignments, grade book, discussion board, and other relevant topics. We will offer Canvas Basics session multiple times during the academic year. Please sign up below.
Canvas Advanced training session will cover more advanced use of Canvas or LTI tools. Each session is dedicated to a specific topic. These sessions are not required, you are welcome to sign up one or more sessions if you are interested. Please sign up below.
