The Academic Technology Department hosted a live-streamed demonstration of the Canvas Learning Management System on Friday, February 16 from 9:30 to 11:30 A.M. A recording of this event can be found below. This demonstration is intended to provide faculty and staff with a first look at Canvas so that they can become more familiar with the LMS that the Faculty Senate has recommended for adoption by our institution in the coming years.
The demonstration was facilitated by Dee Bohne, Canvas Senior Enterprise Director; Brian Yuhunke, Canvas Solutions Engineer; and Steve Brunner, Canvas Senior Director and Solutions Engineer. The live and remote audience had an opportunity to ask questions about the use of Canvas and its features. A copy of the chat transcript that was created during the broadcast can be found here.
If, after watching the broadcast and reading the chat transcipt, you have questions about the use of Canvas, please contact EdTech@fscj.edu. For general information about the LMS, please visit our dedicated Canvas page by clicking here. Thanks for watching our broadcast!

Live streaming requires the use of ten people, three cameras, several computers, yards of cables, and hours of preparation! View the carousel of images below to get a look behind the scenes at the process of setup and filming.
