Hi everyone,


Our district is moving to the paid version of Canvas and we will have numerous teachers new to Canvas. Some people are saying the “non-tech” teachers should move to Google Classroom, therefore, I created a video showing new teachers how to start with Canvas by using assignments. The video begins by having teachers remove the left menus, next they create a welcome page and set it to the front, and finally I introduce ways to create assignments (calendar, module, assignment link). My hope is to stop the Google Classroom is easier noise. 


Would you suggest a different approach?
