The Canvas Essentials series of courses has been designed as an introduction to Canvas, demonstrating how it can be used to support learning, teaching and assessment. This will enable you to raise your awareness of the different features and functionality available in Canvas, and begin to explore how it can be used to develop courses, whilst enhancing the student experience. The Canvas Essentials series is structured as a “course” in Canvas and includes an introduction and some pre-session work. Throughout the Canvas Essentials series, you are expected to engage in self-study, attend face-to-face sessions (when they are operational), engage with the community, build your course and provide feedback. The four key modules in Canvas Essentials are:
• Course Development
• Assessment & Feedback 1
• Assessment & Feedback 2
• Communication & Collaboration
More information on these modules is contained in the dropdown menus below to help you determine whether to undertake the whole Canvas Essentials course or the modules which are most relevant to you.
There are also 2 additional standalone courses available:
• Canvas Turnitin, and
• Canvas Studio
