Ideas for K-12 teachers new to Canvas

Hi

 

In my role I am helping roll out Canvas across the state to teachers K-12.  After working with teachers of differing stages of experience with LMS I decided to try and make it easier for them to decide where to start.  I found that lots of teachers thought that they needed full year long courses with everything their class needed in one spot.  This document is designed as a "place mat"  for teachers to position themselves on and perhaps just focus on learning to do one thing really well eg assignments before adding other tools like discussions or quizzes.

I have had teachers look at this after telling me that Canvas wont be for them - breath a sigh of relief after seeing they don't have to create everything at once - just focus on one thing that will save them time.
