Canvas is coming! We hope that you are as excited about this change as we are! But, for those who are experiencing some trepidation, we have scheduled abundant training and outreach at each campus throughout the 2019 Spring Term. Educational Technology will be teaming up with Training and Organizational Development, the Center for eLearning, and Digital Media Productions to offer in-person and online training opportunities, campus visits, and live broadcasts so that you can learn more about our new Learning Management System, Canvas (or just express your excitement, if you are already a Canvas FanPerson).
Here’s a list of the events that will be occurring through the the 2019 Spring term:
