Spring Workshops Scheduled
February 2, 2016
I’ve scheduled a selection of workshops for the Spring semester. As we come to the end of the main push to migrate to Canvas, I hope to add more variety of topics, so please email me if you have requests.
ITS is considering adopting Campus Pack, which is a suite of tools that integrates with Canvas. Campus Pack provides blogs, wikis, journals, and a robust ePortfolio tool. If you are at all interested in any of these tools, please come to a session and/or send feedback so that we can encourage ITS to adopt the product. This session will not be hands on because we do not have licenses for multiple users during the trial period for the software.
Feb. 18th, 9-11am: McIver 140
Feb. 23rd, 10am-12pm: School of Education 221
March 7th, 1-3pm: McIver 140
Introduction to Canvas
This workshop will give participants an overview of some of the basic features and functionality of Canvas. The following topics will be covered: navigation and settings; email and notifications; using modules/pages/files to deliver content; and a brief overview of assignments.

This brief session will demonstrate how to use the Canvas Scheduler. Scheduler is a tool for creating student sign-up sheets that can be used for advising, one-on-one appointments, group meetings, TA sessions, and presentation times.

Assessment in Canvas
During this workshop we’ll take a closer look at some of the details of assessment in Canvas, including: tips for students, quiz and assignment settings, availability settings, weighting grades, rubrics, and SpeedGrader. You will need to have a basic understanding of Canvas before signing up for this workshop.
