Canvas Guide

Canvas is CBU’s Learning Management System for all courses. Although using a strictly online delivery modality is NOT a requirement, we want to let you know it is an option for you. In addition, if you would like to learn more about online course delivery or about how to use a hybrid delivery modality (i.e., part online, part traditional classroom delivery modality) CDI is here to support you.

Canvas Course Set-Up

You will have a Canvas Production Course Shell automatically waiting for you inside Canvas EACH semester, so you might as well use it! Canvas takes the administrative burdens out of teaching and grading so you can focus on creating and sustaining strong teaching, cognitive, and social presences in your traditional, hybrid, or virtual classrooms.
