To kick start our University-wide move to Canvas over the next 6-18 months, the Educational Innovation Team as part of the DVC (Education) Portfolio are hosting a series of ‘Welcome to Canvas’ sessions to introduce interested academics and designers to how Canvas works, and importantly how to ‘think in Canvas’, which is fundamentally different to how we have been thinking about unit site design for many years.
In these brief 1-hour sessions, we will discuss how Canvas is structurally and philosophically different, how basic unit site design will work in Canvas, introduce you to key Canvas features, and start reimagining your unit sites. These sessions are repeats of each other, so you only need to go to one. Get in quick because we can only fit in a certain number of people due to venue size restrictions. If there is significant demand, we’ll host more sessions or move to a larger venue.
Sessions geared towards OLE designers
Sessions were held in May 2017. Slidedeck available for viewing. Recording available by request. An additional session is available for those who missed it, need a refresher or are interested.
