Full course description
Like an artist's blank canvas, Canvas the program allows a wide variety of customization. You might use it in a very different way from your neighbor.
This course is designed to teach you the basics of Canvas.
You will work through eight units. Each unit requires 1-2 assignments. The course is designed for you to move through step by step, learning a skill and then using it in your own class. The course is self paced, so you may move as quickly or slowly as you wish.
The units are:
- What is an LMS and what can Canvas do?
- Setting up and Making a Page
- Creating Assignments
- Rubrics and the Speedgrader
- Files, Modules, and Links
- Calendars and Discussions
- Tips, Hints, and Tricks
This course will take approximately six hours to complete. A $150 stipend is available for those who complete the course (after you submit the course certificate and a dark yellow BESD contracted payroll voucher to Heidi Wheatley).
