Is your school newly transitioning into Canvas? Do you still have faculty hesitant to try Canvas? Do you struggle scheduling trainings that meet the demands of both the advanced and newbie users? Strong roll-out and adoption plan is key to the success of a learning platform. Adoption is 1 part technology and 3 parts behavior change. This session uncovers the theories behind adoption and helps you design a strategy to increase adoption on your campus.
