Discover Canvas Workshop Series
Each course in the workshop series takes a deep dive into one Canvas topic. The workshops take place over 4-days. Participants should expect to commit at least one hour per day over 4 days (a minimum of 4 hours) completing online activities within a practice Canvas course site in addition to attending an optional 1-hour online session in WebEx. The WebEx session is recorded and made available.
These standalone workshops can be taken in any order. However, we recommend learners new to Canvas take the series in the following order:
- Make Design and Navigation Decisions
- Create Content and Assessments
- Assess Student Progress
