The Center for Digital Instruction holds events and training throughout the year. We provide opportunities for faculty to improve Canvas skills, redesign syllabi for better online learning, and develop new ways to reach students with technology. 

Canvas Training

The 2-hour Canvas Basics class is taught in person by our instructional designers. We give you the training you need to add assignments, build quizzes that are automatically graded and added to your gradebook, create discussions, and add audio and media files to your Canvas shell. These are all tools that can be utilized in online, traditional and hybrid courses.
