We have developed a workshop series to help instructors make the best use of what Canvas has to offer. Training will cover best practices and overarching strategies. The sessions below, offered as both face-to-face workshops and webinars, will help you understand how to use the Canvas LMS tools.
These topics are offered as webinars only:

Webinars are offered using Collaborate, a web conferencing tool. You can also view previous recordings of the webinars listed above in the online Canvas Instructor Training Course. Inside the course, click Bb Collaborate from the main menu, then click the dashed lines to reveal the Collaborate menu. Select Recordings and set the date range to begin May 1, 2017 to see all recordings.
We currently offer two types of in-person, one-on-one support:
Work with the ODL Media Team to develop lecture videos or use the One Button Studio or Kaltura to develop your own.
If you need a general introduction to Canvas or any of its components, please consider attending one of the in-person workshops/webinars. If you are seeking in-depth technical assistance with a particular Canvas challenge, this one-on-one 60-minute consultation will provide you with the help you need.
