Full course description
This course is intended for teachers in a K-20+ environment. Most of the videos are applicable to all ages. The techniques and tools in Growing With Canvas are used from kindergarten through medical school and everywhere in between. The course will also be beneficial for anyone who will be creating a course, for example, school and district administrators as well as university instructional designers.
This course is designed to help teachers learn how to use Canvas effectively in brick and mortar classrooms AND online learning environments. If you are an online instructor, please note that while the course will refer to 'classrooms' the content applies to on-line environments as well.
Participants in this course will watch videos, use Canvas documentation, complete activities, and participate in discussions to learn and apply Canvas features. Along the way, teachers will earn Growing With Canvas badges to demonstrate their accomplishments.
The content of this course compiles material from 2 primary sources: Canvas Video Guides and the Canvas Help Guides. All of these resources are available at any time, in any sequence, in the Canvas Community.
Each module contains about 45 to 65 minutes worth of videos or reading. Plan on 1.5 to 2 hours per module to watch the videos and submit activities related to the content presented.
