Resources & Training Opportunities
Canvas Certification Training
We’ve updated our Canvas Certification Training process to reflect the need for providing remote training to faculty who are new to Canvas.
Certification training is divided into four parts:
- Module 1 - 1 hour, online/self-paced
- Module 2 - 2 hours, workshop/webinar
- Module 3 - 3 hours, online/self-paced
- Module 4 - 1 hour, workshop/webinar
Your Canvas account will be created when you sign up for a Module 2 workshop date and you will receive an email with instructions.
Upon completion of Module 3, you will be prompted to sign up for your Module 4 workshop/webinar.
Module 2 - If you are new to Canvas, this is where you start. After you sign up for Module 2, you will receive a first email within a few days giving you access to Canvas and our online Certification Training course. There you will read through Module 1 and complete the activities at the end of Module 1 on your own before attending the Module 2 workshop via Zoom.
You will receive a second email within a day or two of the Module 2 workshop you choose with the Zoom link.
- Wednesday, February 15 - 3:00pm-5:00pm
- Monday, March 27 - 4:00pm-6:00pm
