Organizing Your Canvas Shell for Graduate Student Instructors

Are you new to Canvas or would you like to streamline your current courses? Organizing material in Canvas can feel overwhelming, especially if you are new to the process. This presentation will review a Canvas design that helps to deliver course content in a simplified manner that students will find refreshing thereby eliminating email, questions, and frustrations on both your end and the students. By using Pages and Modules and having clear timelines and outcomes established at the beginning of the semester, all users are off to success from day one!

At the end of the session, the participants will be able to:

  • Design a Canvas course that students can easily and efficiently navigate. 
  • Create weekly Modules that are detailed and organized. 
  • Link your syllabus to the Canvas To Do list and Gradebook for the entire semester.
