ITG has scheduled a series of workshops and drop-in sessions to help get faculty and staff up and running with Canvas. Each week we’ll offer at least one face-to-face training at various times and locations. Then, Fridays from 9am-5pm, we will run Canvas Open Labs, drop-in office hours where you can come and build your courses in Canvas with assistance from ITG staff. Canvas Open Labs will be held at ITG in Walker 403.

Our first training will be held this Wednesday, October 24th from 12:15pm-1:15pm in the ATL (Walker 418). You can register for this training at:

Canvas is here!

In case you missed the email announcement on Monday, Emerson faculty are now able to begin building their future courses in Canvas. We encourage you to start this process early. On December 31, 2012, you will no longer be able to access your courses in WebCT.

ITG has put together documentation on how to archive your WebCT content and how to get started building your courses in Canvas on the Canvas section of this site.

We are also available to meet with you to discuss the best approach for building your courses in Canvas. Email to schedule an appointment.
