This is a facilitated online training course to prepare faculty to successfully use Canvas either in their online/hybrid course or to supplement their on-site course. Participants will work at their own pace with facilitator support and submit their checklist for review within three weeks from the course start date.

This course also covers laws and regulations for Accessibility (Section 508 and ADA), Regular and Substantive Interaction (RSI), and reporting Last Date of Attendance (LDA), as well as best practices strategies for teaching and learning.
