Enhance Canvas skills with winter and spring training sessions

Dec 13, 2018 | News, Training

To enhance your Canvas skills for spring, register for free, on-demand training sessions. These sessions will cover a variety of topics, from getting started in Canvas to optimizing Canvas courses for accessibility.

From Dec. 17 through Jan. 3, the Penn State training event Winterfest offers four sessions focused on Canvas.

In March, Canvas Day will focus on best practices. In preparation, there will be several regular training sessions on Canvas as well as Canvas Day pre-conference sessions in the spring (see dates below). These sessions will help bring audiences new to Canvas up to speed before attending Canvas Day.

All training sessions listed below will be offered online via Zoom, enabling faculty and staff to participate from anywhere. If a session is full, you may still request it. You will be contacted if space becomes available. Additional sessions may be added based upon waitlist demand.
