If you are one of the teachers, facilitators, instructors or lecturers who is impacted by COVID-19, we have identified 3 things that you can do right now to set up your virtual classroom in Canvas. We have also attached an infographic that you can send or print out to your organisation.
1. Get familiar with your video conferencing tools
Your institution may also be using external video conferencing software such as Zoom, Blackboard Collaborate, Webex or Adobe Connect, so check in with your administrator to ask about your options.
2. Upload your files into Canvas
3. Learn how to set up a Discussion
Discussions allow teachers and students to engage in interactive communication outside of the classroom. They’re easy to create, and offer you the ability to embed notes, slides, pictures and recordings. Use it to get your students to ask questions, problem solve, and generate new ideas.
