Canvas offers live online webinars almost every day. You will need to register for webinars in advance. When signing up for the webinar website make sure to use your GCC email address.
You can complete the "Growing with Canvas" course. This is a Canvas course that will not only teach you how to use Canvas but will also give you first-hand experience on using Canvas as a student.
Please see the Workshop Schedule for in-person training opportunities.
Modules are the cornerstone of course design within Canvas. Modules will contain all of your content, including presentations, discussions, assignments, and tests.
Not sure how to best implement Modules? Don't get mad at Modules, get "Mad about Modules"! The "Mad about Modules" video explains many different ways you can design your course using Modules.
In the Grades area of Canvas you will see a spreadsheet few of your students and graded items. You can type directly into the Grades area or use the SpeedGrader to see more information about what the students have submitted to you.

The Calendar in Canvas shows all of the due dates for your courses and allows you add events and to-do dates that can be used as reminders for your students and yourself. You can also set up scheduling blocks for appointments that your students can reserve.
Several areas within Canvas have been specifically improved for accessibility. Other features may be limited at this time. This section highlights several feature areas and accessibility behaviors.
Rich Content Editor
Canvas Studio is a communication tool that allows instructors and students to actively collaborate through video and audio media. Learn how to add closed captions to Canvas Studio videos.
You can copy course content such as assignments, modules, pages, and discussions from previous Canvas courses into existing courses. You only have access to copy content from courses from current or previous courses in which you are an enrolled user.
When importing course content with the Course Import Tool, you can choose to select specific content as part of the import. This option allows you to select specific content areas such as assignments, settings, and files without importing the entire course.
