Live Webinars from Canvas


Canvas offers live webinars every day on many of the features of Canvas. I strongly recommend that you register with their training site and take a look at the full schedule of webinars available. Registration is required for each webinar and you need to create an account on their site using your PVCC email address as your login name. 


Here are the introductory webinars for February. For those familiar with Canvas, check out their in-depth webinars on the tools in Canvas.


Canvas Course Basics (Start with this workshop)

Course Basics provides an overview of the layout and features included in a Canvas course. Users will learn about the Course Navigation Menu and individual components that can be used to deliver content and assess student performance. This introductory demonstration provides users with the background knowledge to begin their Canvas journey.



Then checkout these Workshops:


Canvas First Look

First Look introduces participants to the Canvas environment, login procedure, and global navigation. Attendees will explore account setup, personal preferences, and communication tools, such as the Inbox and Calendar. This session also presents the numerous avenues for support available to each Canvas user.


Leveraging Modules

Leveraging Modules teaches users how create flow within a course by organizing and structuring content with the Modules tool. Instructors will explore how to create and manage content modules, leverage progress monitoring capabilities, and scaffold student access to course content.

March 27, 10:30am - 11:30am
April 2, 2pm - 3pm


Content Pages

Pages serve as a media rich content delivery tool inside a Canvas course. During this Pages webinar, users will see examples of pages appropriate for different grade levels and content types. Participants will also explore resources to help them create engaging and dynamic pages which will engage students and drive student learning. In addition, users will be shown how to embed valuable third-party tools to reduce distractions and focus learning inside Canvas.
