I did get on but I didn't understand a thing. Most teachers have used this

program, but I only know Google classroom. I am a slow learner too!

Becki, If you are with SAUSD then I suggest you sign up for the course Growing with Canvas.  I think it is very helpful in getting started, and you go at your own pace.   Once I got through how to upload the  assignment part, the rest came easy.....I'm a slow learner too!

About the Author
Normally, I am a classroom teacher currently teaching 7th-grade math. This year I am supporting my school and district as a distance learning coach and Canvas trainer. I have been teaching since the time of the dinosaur (aka....the ditto machine) During the last 35 years, I have written numerous grants, spearheaded the implementation of many school-wide & district-wide technology initiatives, presented at numerous conferences including CUE and CMC. I am currently serving on the OCCUE Board as Vice President, Events. I was an early Canvas adopter in my district and have been an enthusiastic Canvas user since 2015. In my "off" time I am an Assistant Scoutmaster with BSA Troop 636, I love to read, scrapbook, hang out at the beach and play board games with my family. I have 2 boys. One is entering high school this year and the other is a college graduate in mechanical engineering. I love to learn new things, share ideas, innovate in my classroom, and support my colleagues as we work together to support or students.
