I'm brand new in the community and new to Canvas. We are running a pilot this spring where a few dozen faculty will be using Canvas instead of Blackboard. I'm the lone trainer at our campus for LMS systems.
Would anyone be kind enough who has been to this war share with me what they did for training?
Here's what I'm thinking so far:
Editing the menu
Setting your personal preferences
Inbox for communicating
Setting a Home Page
Getting from Blackboard to Canvas
Informal moving of files from Blackboard to Canvas
Users will log into their Blackboard Course – download files – organize and cleanup files – upload files into Canvas
Users will learn how to incorporate these files into a Canvas course
Moving of quizzes, tests and surveys
What works and what doesn’t
Checking feedback and scores
How to deploy a quiz
Canvas Grade Center Essentials
How to add a column in the Grade Center
Types of assignments
Canvas Communication Tools
I've created the following instructional videos to share with you:
Leona supports the LMS system with training, tier two ticket support and testing of the latest LMS software.
She also helps to coordinate technology training on various applications for faculty and staff on the latest tools to support learning technologies that will enhance instruction in academics.
