Canvas Project Update

Canvas Quick Start Courses
 
As you know Blackboard is being switched off on 31st July, if you are yet to engage in any Canvas training, we will be offering Quick Start sessions for the Course Development and Assessment and Feedback 1 modules. 

Quick Start sessions provide bite-sized guidance on getting started in Canvas. If you have yet to login, begun to organise your courses or create assignments, these basic introductory 30min Zoom sessions are for you. You can complete these sessions in order, or book onto a session that best fits your needs. These sessions will be delivered on a rolling basis from July – September 2020. Academic Developers will quickly take you through the basics, with some time for questions at the end of the demonstration. Please note that Canvas 24/7 help can be accessed at any time to answer your questions.
 
Communication and Collaboration and Assessment and Feedback 2 will continue to run as longer sessions.
 
For more information on the content of the Quick Start sessions please see the Course Development or Assessment and Feedback 1 drop down menus below.
 
Bookings can be made via Eventbrite up to 72 hours before the course start time:
