Canvas: Basics Online Spring Break Edition
Mar 10 – Mar 13 all-day

Welcome to Canvas: Basics Online Spring Break Edition 2014!
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, March 10, and ends Thursday, March 13.

New for the Spring Break Edition: optional daily web conference! Join the instructor to talk about Canvas, review topics, ask questions, and get help with the course. (Times to be determined.)
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.
