Training Services Portal Complimentary Content Update

Announcement: Complimentary Content in the Canvas Training Portal is Changing as of August 2022


We wanted everyone who has used the Training Portal to know about some changes you could see beginning August 1, 2022, in your Training Services Portal of Canvas. In an effort to support our clients and educators through the COVID pandemic, we have been providing a small set of on demand training materials in the Canvas Training Portal at no additional cost. We hope that these resources came in handy for you and your faculty. 


What is Changing?

As we gear up for a new summer and fall term, please be aware that the complimentary content will be removed as of August 2022. If you have chosen not to purchase a Canvas Subscription Training Package, the only content that will remain in your Canvas Training Portal will be a course called the Canvas Field Guide. 


What is the Canvas Field Guide?

The Canvas Field guide provides ideas and tips for using some of the basic Canvas features, benefits of tools for educators and students, and links to guides to help use those tools. 


What Canvas Training Portal Subscription Packages are Available?

If you wish to receive courses with rich training videos or even access to live training webinars, we do offer three subscription levels from which to choose. For a full listing of the training content available in the different training packages, please visit this Training Portal Subscription options space.

You may connect with your sales representative or CSM if you wish to receive pricing information on a subscription training package.


Are There Any No Cost Training Resources?

The following resources will continue to be available to you at no additional cost, but will not be located in the Canvas Training Portal. The Training Portal is not customizable beyond the subscription level choice that you make. However, those with Canvas Admin privileges can customize the Help Menu to make access to these resources simple.

  • Instructor Community Guides
  • Admin Community Guides
  • Student Community Guides
  • Flow Chart for setting up a Canvas Course
  • Canvas Network where your team can access the following courses: (Community List)
    • Growing with Canvas
    • Be the Hero - Canvas Admin Orientation
    • Passport to Canvas - Overview of Canvas for Students 


We hope this announcement offers you the time and resources to make a decision that is best for your organization. Thank you for your continued partnership!
