Admin, Instructional Designers, etc.
Clint, it only seems appropriate that I share your question with the Canvas Admins and Instructional Designers groups...
We have 3 admins total, 1 programmer and 2 instruction technologist supporting everything at my institution.
Hi Clint Jacobsen
I hope this helps,
We have 3 admins, but only two full time.
Just part-part-part time? Did you remember that they cut my hours back this year? I think that deserves another -part. Or maybe I don't belong on there at all since he said non-teaching?
Also, thanks for answering. Sometimes I'm too literal, so my initial thought was what a strange question, but maybe it's a statistical study of physical characteristics of Canvas support staff??? I was prepared to offer that I'm about 70 pounds too large while the other two seem about normal, but your answer makes a lot more sense.
In our K12 district we have about 15,000 courses. We don't have any staff that are completely dedicated to Canvas.
Hope that helps!
We have about 8,000 courses per year, 25,000 students per semester and 1500 faculty per semester. At our institution we have 4 support staff in the Academic Technology unit (1 manager, 3 Instructional Technology Consultants) dedicated to supporting the system wide educational technologies (Canvas, Adobe Connect, EvaluationKIT, iClicker, Panopto and RLDB). The four of us provide all of the the technical training and support for all faculty at the 5 campuses and provide secondary support for all of the students (our IT help desk provides primary support for students). We have another group of 5 FTE that provide workshops and support for online pedagogy and online course design. They also do formal and informal QM reviews of courses at our main campus.
We are a rural community college and have an enrollment of about 5000
Sounds like we are the same person! At our rural community college,it is just myself and I have 2 others trained as back up admins in case I am out, but other than that, I do it all. 30 full-time faculty and 250+ adjunct faculty and 500-600 courses per semester. Our SIS integration is handled by a cohort university that helps us with IT, but I help with publisher and app integrations in Canvas and AV support on campus and I train everyone that uses Canvas! It really is not that difficult doing it myself, once you get a routine established and are prepared for common issues that come up each semester. I have a note sheet on my computer with the common start of the semester issues and as tickets come in-copy and paste!
Ah Sue, so humble. You are truly fantastic & under appreciated IMO. Her dedication keeps us all afloat. Her efforts are endless to help everyone on campus learn effective canvas skills. Thank You! I dream of the day that you get a support person. You deserve it! Then we can really get it all together Campus wide & utilize the system to all of its glory, completely engaging our students online.
We have four full-time people:
We also have two or three admins who "make Canvas happen" within their departments as part (<15%) of their overall duties.
Our school has about 800 students and 250 teaching faculty total in about six distinct programs. There are also a couple hundred clinical adjunct faculty who will be starting to use Canvas to input grades next May. We have no TAs or graduate assistants in any courses, and we run courses year-round, which are large reasons why we need so many admin staff to take LMS management off teaching faculty shoulders.
Butler Community College - both suburban and rural campuses in south central Kansas...with 8,000 headcount, 7,000 total enrollments in online courses per semester. We have six full time people dedicated to educational technology:
Around here that's a very confusing question ;-)
We have one LMS Learning Applications analyst and administrator (me, with necessary backup)
We have access to our Integrations team for Snapshot Generator and API calls
Each campus has CTLE to train and work with faculty (3-campuses: Daytona Beach, Prescott AZ, and Worldwide)
Worldwide campus has a team for Instructional Design and Development
Worldwide campus has an Academic Technology team for course and faculty oversight
All of the Worldwide courses and many of the residential courses are created from over 1,000 templates. We have both traditional and monthly semesters.
We have about 7500 student headcount, 1300 classes in a long semester, about 350 of those are fully online or hybrid classes. All our classes use the LMS to some degree.
We have 4 full-time folks in our Distance Learning department:
We are blessed to have a great team. We also have wonderful support from our IT department that maintains the SIS integration and LDAP authentication.
