The Canvas Help hours is an online office hour for those teachers/admin having questions getting started with Canvas. I am the Canvas Administrator for MSD of Warren Township in Indianapolis, IN. We are a K-12 district with approximately 11,000 Students. We started using Canvas in August of 2019 in grades 5-12. The district is 1:1 with device take home in grades 9-12 with carts of devices in Grades 5-8. We are also a GAFE school as well
This is an office hour, so whoever attends directs the conversation. I am not only the Canvas Admin for the school year, but also for our summer school program, which is moving to Canvas this summer. I also teach an online summer school course, Geometry S-2, for Indiana Online Academy.
Course participants who join this session could be from MSD of Warren Township, but all members of the Canvas Community are welcome to visit the office hour.
