We know a lot of you prefer to learn at your own pace and on your own schedule. Our goal is to provide you with several video resources that will assist you in learning the Instructor side of Canvas.

   Beginner  Advanced


Welcome To Canvas Recordings

First Look and Course Basics are two introductory training sessions that are each available as 1-hour recordings. These sessions will give new users a sneak peek into what they will experience as they begin their Canvas journey.


Personality goes a long way 

Did you know that instructor presence in an online course is the single, most important factor in determining a student’s success and satisfaction? Frequent feedback, regular announcements, timely correspondence with students are just some indicators of teacher presence, but it doesn't necessarily guarantee it. In this session, the Canvas Network team will share creative ways to sprinkle your personality into your courses so students can connect with you -- and not the robot teacher in a dark room somewhere.


Tips to designing Mobile Friendly Assignments 

While the Canvas app is effective in translating your course to be responsive on a mobile device, it is the job of the teacher or instructional designer to effectively design assignments to address the on-the-go learner, as well. We have tips to help you make your assignments even MORE mobile-friendly! 


Canvas Training T2T Series 

Our very own Canvas Training Team presents the Train 2 Train series. This monthly series is designed for those folks who are in the position of training their faculty or staff on Canvas. Each month they feature a new topic, with discussions, feedback sessions and previews of new training sessions. While these sessions are delivered live, the recordings are made available after each session has ended.


Google LTI Series  

Google LTI Series is a limited, bi-weekly series of 30-minute presentations and discussions designed to explore the power and capabilities of the new Google LTI integration. 


Office 365 LTI Series  

Office 365 LTI Series is a limited, bi-weekly series of 30-minute presentations and discussions designed to explore the power and capabilities of the new Office LTI integration. 


Groupies Series  

In Canvas, the word ‘groups’ is used throughout the platform to mean different things. The Groupies Series is designed to clarify these nuances in hopes that you become a ‘fan’ of groups in Canvas.


Inspire Greatness with Canvas Feedback Loops

We all know that rich feedback between teachers and students inspires students to perform their best, corrects misconceptions, and encourages a growth mindset. But who has time? With Canvas you do! Not only does Canvas reduces time needed to provide rich feedback but also provides numerous pathways to get a feedback loop going with your students.
