Learning about Canvas

How will I learn to use Canvas effectively?

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning has put together multiple ways to learn about Canvas that fit various learning preferences.



Self-paced course

Lynda.com offers a helpful, friendly, and self-paced course that covers the ins and outs of Canvas. Instructors can chose to learn about all of Canvas or they can target their learning on particular aspects. The Lynda.com course uses the plain-vanilla Canvas set-up; UW-System has chosen to employ a slightly different template. Some aspects in the Lynda.com course will differ from the course instructors see when they log into their courses. The Lynda.com course requires users to login with their campus username and password.

Instructional videos

For an overview of the various aspects in Canvas that are geared toward a UW-System audience, please view the videos from the "train the trainer" session filmed at UW-Whitewater. The version of Canvas in these videos mirrors that which instructors will see when they log into their courses at UWGB.
