Canvas Workshop

As you turn your thoughts to spring 2016, please join us for a workshop on using Canvas as a teaching tool on Friday, March 4, at 10:30 a.m. in MGH 082. Whether you’ve never used Canvas before or are looking to take your Canvas use to the next level, you’ll get answers and help from two experienced Canvas users, Kimberlee Gillis-Bridges and Ann Shivers-McNair. To accommodate a range of experience and comfort levels, we’ve organized the workshop in two parts. You’re welcome to attend either or both parts.

10:30 Р11:30  Introduction to Canvas Basics

If you’re new to Canvas and considering using it for the first time, this is for you! We’ll be covering the following essentials:

  • Navigating the Canvas interface
  • Editing your syllabus and syllabus description
  • Uploading and managing files
  • Creating assignments

11:30 Р12:20  Small group and one-on-one consultations

If you have a specific question about or a feature you want to learn on Canvas, this is for you! Ann and Kimberlee will be available to work with you one-on-one or in small groups (if a few people have the same question). Also, if you joined us for the first hour, you can stick around to find out more about other commonly used features on Canvas, like pages, discussions, groups, and other settings options.

Let us know if you have any questions, and we look forward to seeing you there!
