Canvas Training

Educational Technology (EdTech) welcomes Jamie Harris to the School of Nursing as an Instructional Designer. Jamie will be assisting us over the next six months in the transition of Blackboard to Canvas. She has a Master’s degree in Educational/Instructional Technology/Design from Duquesne University and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education & Teaching from Indiana University.

As a reminder, EdTech will be hosting Canvas webinars and workshops for faculty and staff in Spring 2022. Visit our registration page to sign up. 

  • Part 1: Canvas Training  
    In this Canvas Part 1 training course, participants will learn how to design a course in Canvas. Review the Canvas layout and navigation. In addition, participants will learn how to communicate with their students via announcements and emails, upload and organize content using modules and pages, create discussions and assignments, and become familiar with SpeedGrader. 
  • Part 2: Canvas Training 
    In this Canvas Part 2 training course, participants will learn more in-depth features about modules and assignments, create and deploy quizzes, use the grade book, and learn more about SpeedGrader. 

When registering for a two-part Canvas training, only select one option from the list of available trainings. Each option includes registration for Part 1 and Part 2. Both the Canvas webinar and workshop cover the same topics, but the workshop is a hands-on training. If you prefer hands-on, please register for a workshop session.
