Canvas Overview: This workshop is designed to introduce Canvas to those who have never used it before. This 1-hour workshop will provide a high-level overview of basic functionality within Canvas. It will cover Navigation, Help/Resources, and the Canvas Interface.
Assignments & Grades: With Canvas, we have access to many new tools, including some that are for creating assignments for our students as well as assessing their work. These tools present many new opportunities for reviewing, assessing, and communicating about student work. Join us for a workshop where we will review these tools and their uses.
Quizzes: Canvas has great tools for creating quizzes for our students. Join us for a workshop where we will review the types of Quizzes, Question Banks, Grading Quizzes, and other functionalities to successfully assess your students.
Modules & Pages: You have your content, assignments, and quizzes ready to go, now what? Modules allow you to organize your content to help control the flow of your course and pages store content and resources for students. Using these two powerful tools will assist in organizing your course content and giving your students an easy-to-follow layout.
Groups & Collaboration: Canvas has many options for collaboration and working in groups. This workshop will cover the tools within Canvas for collaboration and student group work.
Zoom within Canvas: Zoom and Canvas are compatible tools that can help you collaborate with your students in class sessions, office hours, meetings, and group projects. There are several ways to integrate Zoom into your Canvas course to make facilitating meetings seamless. In this workshop, we will review these integrations so that you can replicate them in your own course.
Kaltura within Canvas: This session introduces you to the video creation and streaming software Kaltura and Kaltura Capture, and will prepare you to record mini-lectures, video feedback, weekly summaries, presentations, and more. You will learn not only the technical aspects of the software but also how to effectively integrate this technology into your class and how to use it as a teaching tool.
