Oxy's Learning Management System

Training sessions

1. Faculty and support staff now have access to the Canvas Faculty PD course within Canvas. The course covers the fundamental components of the Canvas LMS system and consists of asynchronous training materials so you can go at your own pace. You will learn how to create Modules, Assignments, and Quizzes, use the Rich Content Editor, Grading and Feedback, and much more.

2. Instructure, the educational technology company behind Canvas, will provide us with three virtual training sessions in August (you will receive invites to those sessions via email). These sessions will cover many of the same topics contained in the asynchronous module described above, but in an interactive format. 

  • August 8, 10:30am - 12:00pm: Content Creation/Modules Open Q&A

  • August 15, 10:30am - 12:00pm: Assignments & Grading/Feedback Open Q&A

  • August 22, 10:30am - 12:00pm: New Quizzes & Item Banks Open Q&A 

The sessions will be recorded and made available to all upon their conclusion.

Drop in sessions

Members of the Canvas Implementation Team, along with Oxy librarians, will be available throughout the summer on Wednesdays from 1:30 - 3:00pm and Thursday from 11:00am - 12:30pm in the Brown LearnLab in the Academic Commons.
