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.
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.
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!
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.

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.
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.
