Canvas Online TEACHING Course

The Faculty Success Center (FSC) is now offering multiple sections of our required "Teaching Online in Canvas" course and will continue through the summer! Beginning in the summer term, courses will ONLY be offered in Canvas. All instructors need to complete the online training and complete the course review process in order to receive an official course shell. In this required 3.5 - 4 week synchronous, facilitated fully online course you will learn how to use Canvas and the importance of the supporting pedagogy and accessibility issues, plus you will build and develop your first course!

Everyone will need to complete the online training. There will be support provided in the FSC although there aren't any face to face training sessions in place of this online course. Please check your Coastline email address for updates during the semester!

Registration is open now! At this time, registration is open for all instructors getting ready to teach in the Fall. Training needs to be completed before the end of May, and all courses submitted for review by June 30th.
