Canvas Klatch (August 25): "Roasting the Beans" 

When

Friday, August 25, 2017 at https://cccconfernow.zoom.us/j/736983384

Starts at 3:00 PM · Ends at 4:00 PM, MDT (America/Denver)

Description

The Canvas Klatch is an online office hour for the course Introduction to Teaching with Canvas. Course participants are mostly faculty from California's community colleges. Canvas is the learning management system for the Online Education Initiative.

 

Agenda (or Objectives)

This is an office hour, so whoever attends directs the conversation. Previous sessions have covered how to complete course assignments and therefore serve as overviews of how to use various tools in Canvas. This session is scheduled during the first week of a four-week class, so it's like we're roasting the beans.
