Getting Started with Canvas

September 25, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This is a two-hour Canvas training session. Participants will learn about basic features and functionalities in Canvas including:

  • managing courses on the Canvas dashboard
  • creating pages, assignments, quizzes and discussions
  • using modules to organize your content
  • uploading files
  • interacting with your gradebook
  • customizing your homepage
  • … and much more.

Questions are encouraged and participants should bring their own laptops.

Participants will also be made aware of additional online and face-to-face training resources.

All credit-based courses can transition to Canvas and can be accessed by logging into the Learn@UW Course Dashboard. If you do not have a credit-based course, we encourage you to set up a sandbox course prior to the training. To do so, you can work with the designated learning technology point-person for your school or college, or submit this form.
