Canvas Synchronous Training Ending June 15
There are only a couple more days left to take advantage of the one hour, live, synchronous, training events every day of the week. These are a great way to learn about Canvas, from Canvas trainers, in a way that fits your busy schedule.
Example topics include Course basics, Gradebook and Speedgrader, Course Communication, as well as many more! Register and see the available sessions.
UMN's Self-Help Guides take you through a wide variety of common practices and tools with screenshots and step-by-step instructions. They are broken up into five categories.
- Canvas Transition: Migrate a Course from Moodle to Canvas
- Create & Organize Content
- Communicating with Students
- Collaborate with Groups
- Assess and Grade Student Work
The Canvas Community also has a wealth of information and knowledge sharing about Canvas. Search the Canvas Guides when you aren't sure if a feature is available, or how to implement it.
As always, feel free to request a one-on-one appointment with a UMD ITSS educational technologist or a custom session for a group, department or unit by completing our Educational Technology Appointment Request Form.
