Canvas Tips & Tricks – Part 1

Learn@UW Online Trainings - Fall 2023

Event Details

Thursday, August 24, 2023
11 a.m.-12 p.m.

Canvas is a large application, with numerous features and functionalities. Our other  Canvas training sessions focus on specific functionality. This 90-minute session zeroes in on several "smaller" items that often get over looked. These components will be variously valuable to each attendees. But, in aggregate, they will help you become a more complete and knowledgeable user of the tool.

Canvas Tips & Tricks - Part 1 addresses the following items. Other items will be added, as time permits.

  • Choosing the best Home page for your course
  • What is a "Module Zero", and why do I need one?
  • Managing module settings, like requirements and prerequisites
  • Using the Canvas "undelete" feature
  • Creating anonymous discussions
  • Building surveys in Canvas
  • Optimizing Canvas announcements
  • Controlling student access to your course

This session is entirely remote and will be held in a Zoom room. The link to the Zoom room is provided nearby.
