Canvas Semester Wrap-up Webinar
Dec 6 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

This 1 hour live webinar course shares some best practices and tips and tricks for the end of the semester! This is not a hands-on training. This course assumes that participants already have some experience using Canvas, or have taken Canvas: Basics Online or another Canvas training. We will address:

  • how to copy your old courses into your new courses
  • how to download data from the Gradebook
  • what to expect after the end of the semester
  • how to provide access after the semester ends to your Canvas course for a student with an Incomplete grade
  • And more!

We will conclude with open Q&A regarding Canvas.

This webinar will be held via a Collaborate web conference. Click here for the link to join the web conference; this link will be active starting 30 minutes prior to the start of the webinar. We recommend that you join the webinar early to check your audiovisual settings. We also recommend that you visit this webpage with the browser you intend to use for the web conference: it will check to make sure that your browser is ready for Blackboard Collaborate.  If you are not familiar with Blackboard Collaborate, then we suggest that you watch this 7-minute Participant Orientation tutorial video.

Canvas: Basics Online
Jan 6 – Jan 9 all-day

This session will take place completely online in the Canvas learning management system, at coloradomtn.instructure.com. It will take place over 4 days: it begins on Monday morning and ends Thursday evening. There are deadlines for each day’s work to keep the group moving forward together, but participants may work on the assignments at any time of day or night, from any computer (PC or Mac) with an Internet connection and either Firefox, Safari, Chrome, or Internet Explorer. In Canvas: Basics Online we will cover how to:

  • Log into Canvas
  • Modify your profile and Notifications in Canvas
  • Make your course “published” so that students can see it
  • Create an announcement
  • Create Pages and add text, videos, and links to the course’s Pages
  • Create a Discussion
  • Work with modules
  • Create Assignments
  • And more!

In addition to these tasks, the group will also be communicating via the course discussions. Participants will be engaging with Canvas as students and will carry out some of the assigned tasks in the Canvas course for this training. However, some of the tasks must be done outside of this training’s course, in a “sandbox” course where the participant has an instructor role. This “sandbox” course will be provided for course participants. This training concludes with a final quiz on Canvas topics.
