Canvas 101: Building a Course
There are multiple ways to learn about Canvas at the Trefny Center. 

Weekly Office Hours
We offer Canvas Office Hours from 11am - 12pm on Wednesdays and 12:30 - 2pm on Fridays 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!





The Canvas for Admins face-to-face workshop was designed to address admin-specific Canvas needs. This training will demonstrate avenues for communicating with students/staff, creating course shells for non-registrar courses, and preparing admins to successfully navigate Canvas. Please bring your laptop and appetite. Snack will be provided.




 
The Canvas 101 face-to-face 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.


If you want to see the content of this workshop in advance, here is the Canvas Workshop 101 handout.
