0There are multiple ways to learn about Canvas at the Trefny Center. 

Weekly Office Hours
Every Friday we offer Canvas Office Hours from 11am - 1pm at the Trefny Center - Alderson Hall 268.  Bring your digital device, and stop on by for on-site help with your Canvas needs.  No appointment necessary!

Canvas 101 Face to Face Workshops
The Canvas 101 workshop will start by providing a basic overview of how Canvas is structured. Once you have your bearings, we can begin to think through how to organize your materials and utilize the tools within Canvas. The final portion of the workshop entails working together to build out your course in Canvas. Bring your laptop. Refreshments will be provided.
