Canvas Subscription Training

Canvas Subscription Training sessions are one-hour, live webinars presented directly by Canvas at a variety of dates and times.

Canvas Office Hours

Office Hours offer one-on-one assistance by appointment (30 minutes) at various campus locations. Sign up for an appointment to work with one of our instructional support specialists on a Canvas topic of your choice. Use this time to migrate your Blackboard course to Canvas, if you need assistance.

Registration is required. Register for a time slot using these step-by-step instructions. When prompted to select a course, choose “Welcome to Canvas.” If this course is not available, you are not yet enrolled. Enrollment in the course is provided after you sign up for Canvas resources.

Canvas Drop-In Labs

Drop-In Labs are unstructured sessions during which faculty can migrate and/or set up courses with our instructional support specialists available to answer questions as needed. Faculty should come prepared to work independently. Registration is not required, but seats are limited, and availability is first come, first served. Find dates and locations listed on the Training Events page.

Canvas Demo Sessions

Groups or departments can request Demo Sessions. Our instructional support specialists will present an overview of CanvasĀ  followed by a brief question and answer period or focus on a topic of your choice. We’ll coordinate a session date and location with you. Demos are usually one hour long.
