Fall 2016 Technology Workshops - Focus on Canvas

Starting in Spring 2016, Santa Monica College will transition from the Pearson Learning Studio/eCollege to Canvas.

Canvas is a Learning Management System – a way to simplify teaching and learning by connecting all the digital tools teachers use in one easy place.

The Center for Teaching Education and Distance Education Committee invite all SMC Faculty to join us this fall for a series of workshops on how to use Canvas LMS, as well as the programs and tools that work within Canvas to enhance assignments, online quizzes, and multi-media content.

Seats are limited, so please RSVP directly to the presenter.

Fall 2016 Technology Workshop Descriptions

Introduction to Canvas

09/16, 10/07, 11/04

This is an introductory workshop on using Canvas in your on-ground courses. Topics covered include navigation, the Dashboard, creating modules and pages, content pages, creating assignments, and entering grades. (1 hour demonstration followed by 1 hour hands-on in lab)

Using Canvas – Advanced

09/30, 10/14

This is a follow-up to the introductory workshop on Canvas and will showcase more advanced features of Canvas. Some of the more advanced features covered in this session are quizzes, gradebook, discussions, attendance function, Canvas calendar, integrating publisher content, and adding 3rd party apps to Canvas. Participants should have attended the introductory workshop or have a basic understanding of Canvas. (1 hour demonstration followed by 1 hour hands-on in lab)

Copying Courses in Canvas & Archiving eCompanion Courses

10/21

This workshop will teach participants how to use Canvas to import and export course content to and from course shells. Instructors will use this to copy their course shells from semester to semester. Participants will also learn how to archive old eCompanion data including exporting the Gradebook, quizzes and other data. (1 hour demonstration followed by 1 hour hands-on in lab)

3C Media Solutions

9/23

Come and see how you can easily store, stream and share video files for free with the 3C Media Solutions service funded by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office. This tool will be vital in Canvas since we no longer have the ability to store large media files on our new platform. Learn also how 3C Media helps making your videos accessible to students with disabilities a breeze with its free captioning service. If you use streaming video in your online or on-ground classes, then this workshop is for you! (1 hour demonstration followed by 1 hour hands-on in lab)

Create and Manage Online Tests and Quizzes with Respondus

11/18

Come and see how you can use Respondus to create and manage online quizzes using your own or pre-existing test banks and then upload them to Canvas. If you are an on-ground instructor who would like to incorporate online quizzes into your classes, then this workshop is for you! (1 hour demonstration followed by 1 hour hands-on in lab)
