Need to know!
To make sure we are available for faculty for the start of the semester, we will not be holding any formal training sessions for the first few weeks of the Fall 21 term.
Pre-recorded training sessions can be found in the Intro to Canvas course available in Canvas. If you do not see this class on your dashboard, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org right away.
what is canvas?
Canvas is a course management system that supports online learning and teaching. It allows professors to post grades, information, and assignments online. It is being used by universities and colleges all over the world.
Canvas offers a more user-friendly experience for students, staff, and faculty, and provides tools and features that can expand learning activities, improve assessment strategies, and provide new opportunities for collaboration. Program coordinators and Chairs will find the Outcomes Assessment features in Canvas particularly helpful in assessing course- and program level learning outcomes. Coordination of multi-section courses is also much easier for both instructors and course coordinators with tools to combine sections for to create “blueprints” for multiple sections.
Canvas’s mobile app for both instructors and students offer a huge improvement over other learning management systems. Apps are available for both iOS and Android.
