Getting Started with Canvas

January 16, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Getting Started with Canvas is a 90-minute 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 and managing files
  • interacting with your gradebook
  • customizing your homepage
  • … and much more.

Questions are encouraged.

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.

Attendees should bring their own device for accessing their Canvas dashboard and courses.

The instructor will remain in the classroom for 90 minutes after the training session, to provide support and answer questions as necessary.
