Canvas Trainings

In our school district, we currently have four different courses that we offer.  Those courses are as follows:

  • Canvas 101: Introduction
  • Canvas 101: Assignments
  • Canvas 101: Quizzes
  • Canvas 101: Discussions

I am working on developing some 201 Canvas courses.  So far I have the following ideas:

  • Canvas 201: Customization of Pages (focus on creating buttons, using icons, tabs within a page, announcements box)
  • Canvas 201: Canvas Commons and Templates
  • Canvas 201: Outcomes
  • Canvas 201: Engagement Strategies

Does anyone have any other ideas or already created resources to help with the development of the courses?  Thank you in advance for any feedback or input.

Perhaps a 300 level for a synthesis type courses?  Or perhaps you cover this in some of your already existing courses.


Canvas 301: Putting a Course Together

I only have 1 training course and I've embedded the Canvas training videos.  However, my last video is self-made and it takes all of these concepts and shows how to put it together. I've called it "Build a Course in 30 Minutes."

Do you have something that focuses on the Conferences or the Collaborations features?

Excellent idea,  @canvas_admin 

Have you shared your video anywhere?  I would love to check it out. 

I just sent you a message with the link. Smiley Happy

lauramaewojo, you might want to take advantage of this resource: Create a Simple Canvas Course​. And, because this isn't the sort of discussion that will lead to a single "correct" answer, I've changed the format to a discussion.

Thank you, stefaniesanders​.  I will definitely check it out!
