Self-paced Learning

The Canvas learning management system (LMS) is fairly intuitive but we still recommend planning some "get to know you" time with this new platform.  Here are ways to meet Canvas that e-Learning Services recommends:

  • Visit the Conversion and Clean-up page - this has some information on how your content comes from Blackboard to Canvas, plus information on organizing your Canvas Dashboard
  • Template Tutorials - each course for summer and fall 2020 is preloaded with a template.  In the template, there is an unpublished module that explains how to use the template from the instructor point of view
  • Growing with Canvas - this is your very own self-paced online course where you can learn to use Canvas

Growing With Canvas

 Canvas Coaching 

e-Learning has scheduled several sessions to coach you on how to use Canvas.  The sessions will cover the following topics: 

  • Session 1 - Getting Started: Template, Syllabus, and Settings
  • Session 2 - Organizing: Building Modules and Adding Content
  • Session 3 - Assessment: Assignments, Quizzes, & SpeedGrader

**We strongly recommend attending the sessions in order**

**You just need to attend one time slot for each session.  Each session is 1-hour**

All Sessions will be held remotely, via BigBlueButton.

You will recieve a link to join on the morning of the session.

sessions open to all faculty & STAFF

For sessions in June and July, please complete the Qualtrics Survey to Sign-up for the session(s) you plan to attend.  e-LS requires a minimum of 3 participants to hold the session. 

You will be notified the Monday before your session if there are NOT enough participants to hold the training. 

If there are enough participants, you will receive a link to join the session on the morning of the scheduled training.
