Yes, I believe the Training Services materials are only available in English. We do have the Canvas guides available in Chinese here: Canvas 指南中文版 (zh) . Let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Is there a thorough description of the training portal (that includes approximate times) for instructors to request CEUs?

Thank you,

Hi jherron@silverdaleba.org 

I'm not aware of a document in the Community that includes this information. However, you can email learning.services@instructure.com to request this information. 

Thanks,

Has anyone found a way to link learners directly to a course in the Training Services Portal?

aocheath@garlandisd.net,

Unfortunately because of the way Bridge (the software behind the Training Services Portal) treats links to these courses and enrollments within the course, it's not possible to copy a shareable link to the course. Sorry I can't be of more help with this. Let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

- Nathan
