Canvas Demos from Lower Columbia

Please see this note from Renee Carney of Lower Columbia College:

As our campus continues to move courses to Canvas for our continued pilot window we have been providing introductory trainings from the instructor’s perspective and the learner’s perspective.  We are hosting two online sessions next week and an additional webinar the following week for the WA eLearning Community.   I wanted to open these sessions up to anyone that would like to take a look.  You are welcome to share this invite with your faculty as well.

An Instructor’s Introduction to Canvas
The Instructor’s introduction to Canvas will provide a basic overview of dashboard navigation, personal profiles and settings, communication, course setup, course navigation, course content, the calendar, and grading.  It is a lot to cover, but you will leave this session with a better understanding of Canvas as a tool to facilitate active learning and community interaction!

Canvas, the student perspective
The student perspective of Canvas provides instructors with a basic understanding of how students navigate and interact with the Canvas user interface, and course content.  The overview will focus on how students receive communication, how they navigate a course, how they submit work, and other community building tools they have available.  This perspective provides instructors with insight as they evaluate, adapt, or create their own course.
