I am the Canvas Admin/Online Learning Director/Instructional Designer at a small, private college. We have just adopted Canvas and faculty/adjuncts love it! What I need now is training over the summer for my faculty/staff. We don't necessarily want to pay big bucks for the pre-packaged solutions, and I can do the training on my own. What I would like to know is what kinds of ideas/strategies have you implemented to train your instructors?
When we started up, we had different workshops on different topics. For example, one workshop focused solely on Quizzes. While others focused on SpeedGrader/Assignments, Inbox/Discussions, etc. I think it helped by breaking the training into different pieces. I think faculty were less overwhelmed that way! After everyone got acclimated, I now send out emails when major updates take place in Canvas. Once the faculty were initially trained, they are not prone to attend additional workshops. Therefore, I send out the emails for the ones who want to be updated!
I'm not sure which link you're referring to. If you go through the discussion, there are TONS of links and resources. I think "Page 5" of this discussion has some of the most helpful, so maybe navigate there, and see what you can find.
Hope that helps!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!
You have all been fantastic, and I'm so thankful for all of the great resources and links!!!
Would you be able to send me a link. I am working on an instructor Orientation course and would like to see how you have it set up.
Hi Marci -
Sure thing! It may be easiest to find it in Canvas Commons, by searching for OTC. Let me know if it'd be easier for you to have the *.imscc, though, and I'll be happy to make that available.
