Does your institution use Canvas LMS to deliver employee training?

Does your higher ed institution use Canvas LMS to deliver employee training?

Do you use a different employee training platform instead? 

Just starting to look into the possibility and wanted to see what other institutions are doing.

Hi  @farrarem ,

I have worked at 2 higher ed institutions that have used Canvas and both of them have used it to provide employee training. From on boarding, to continually training on core teaching methods, etc.  

Canvas provides a great platform to provide continually employee training as you can produce reports to see how employees are progressing through the course and grades they are making on the quizzes.

 @farrarem  yes, we use Canvas for employee onboarding, Title IX training, and other things like this. Overall it works really well and we’ve been happy with it. It’s also nice that by doing this all staff get at least a basic level of understanding about how Canvas works/functions.

We have both Canvas and Bridge. We will use one or the other depending on the degree of interactivity needed and the instructional need. (Bridge being for more compliance-oriented content transmission and Canvas for more dynamic experiences.)

sethgurell‌, I hope to see you some time in the Bridge Community:  Welcome | Bridge Community

Our community college is in the process of creating an onboarding course for new faculty. The course is in Canvas and will include information about who we are as an organization, where to find resources, how to help students access resources, etc.

Do you force enroll faculty or allow the self-enroll option? This is something we are currently wrestling through.

We have not gone live with the course and our plan is to set it up for fall 2018. My guess it that we will force enroll just so faculty have the resources. As of right now, there are no quizzes, required discussions, etc. It is really just a repository for information.
