Ready to be an early adopter of Canvas? Join us for this soup-to-nuts canvas academy and leave with your fall course (mostly) created! This session will introduce you to Canvas and provide best practices for its effective use. Together, we will add and organize course content, assignments and quizzes. We'll get you up and running with the basic settings in your gradebook and course calendar. We'll even review discussion and collaboration tools to help you communicate with students (and them with each other). Lastly, we'll discuss ways to make your Canvas course accessible, and add your students before classes start this fall. Faculty are encouraged to bring a Blackboard course archive or other course materials with them. (See teaching.temple.edu/canvas for instructions on how to export your Blackboard course).
