Self Paced Introduction to Teaching with Canvas

Faculty may also self-enroll for the free self-paced version offered by @ONE at any time.

Course Description: This self-paced course will introduce you to using Canvas in online, hybrid, and face-to-face classes. These simple, hands-on lessons give you the chance to master Canvas in your own practice course to build a home page, content page, discussion, and quiz, while also exploring how to use Canvas communication tools.

If you're new to Canvas, or just want a powerful refresher on the basics, this course is a great starting point, and you get to keep your sandbox to play in, experiment, and build your online material.
