Getting Started with Canvas Workshop – August 17, 2017


Get ready for Fall and learn the basics of our new Learning Management System, Canvas. In the first 90 minutes of workshop, you will have the opportunity to explore Canvas, including general navigation of the interface, notifications and communication, and content creation and organization. We will also cover how to set up and deliver announcements, assignments, and discussions. The last 30 minutes will be dedicated to Q&A, and the workshop will be hosted in a PC computer lab, so bringing your personal laptops is not necessary.

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Navigate the dashboard, global navigation, and sidebar
  2. Adjust the course layout and design
  3. Identify ways to communicate and interact with students
  4. Identify ways to create and manage course content

We will be hosting more Canvas workshops in the future dedicated to gradebooks and other Canvas tools and features.
