Coronavirus: latest information

In light of the unfolding Coronavirus situation, all scheduled Canvas training has been canceled this week (16th – 20th March).  

This will reduce unnecessary contact and allow the project team to switch focus to developing a more sustainable online approach.

Future Training Provision

Training will resume via Zoom from Tuesday 24th March onwards, as per the existing schedule. We will also be enhancing our on-line provision, so that Course Development and Assessment & Feedback 1, will be available as online resources for self-paced study.

The delivery of the following scheduled training will be temporarily suspended whilst arrangements are reviewed (delegates will be notified directly):

• Assessment and Feedback 2
• Communication and Collaboration
• Turnitin in Canvas
• Any scheduled “closed courses” arranged with colleges

Alternative sessions are available for booking here:
