Canvas Feature Deep Dives and trainings in July

June 29, 2021

Cardinal Update News Newsletters

As Saint Mary’s fully implements its single Canvas learning management system across its programs, CELT and Instructional Technology are gearing up for a new type of training option in July: Canvas Feature Deep Dives. These will be offered in addition to the usual introductory and intermediate trainings and will be recorded for future viewing. While these trainings will be virtual, we are also planning to start in-person trainings again.

The Deep Dives will focus on particular Canvas features, but also on technologies that integrate closely with Canvas, such as Panopto, Flipgrid, and Ally.

Finally, Instructional Technology will be creating a number of resource videos for on-demand trainings on common topics related to Canvas, Panopto, and other important instructional technologies. These will be available at in mid-July.

The list of trainings and their times follows. Just click on the link to go to the CELT calendar and RSVP for as many trainings as you like. If you miss one of the Deep Dives, you’ll be able to find them on CELT’s recordings page.
