COM is migrating to a new learning management system in fall 2017. Are you ready?

Canvas training will be offered to COM faculty and staff on a weekly basis at the Kentfield Campus or through online webinars (Indian Valley Campus dates coming soon!). All workshops and webinars are led by Instructional Technologist Stacey Lince.

The beginning-level workshop, Canvas Basics, provides an introduction to the Canvas interface, instruction on migrating courses from Moodle to Canvas, basic course navigation and design, and communication tools.

The second-level workshop, Canvas Course Design, includes topics such as content development and organization, working with modules, and creation of activities such as assignments, quizzes, and discussions.

Introduction to Teaching with Canvas by @One For Training
@One offers a free Introduction to Teaching with Canvas course for all CCC faculty. This four-week online course introduces you to how to teach using the Canvas learning management system by Instructure. You will learn how the system works through a series of curated readings and recall what you have learned through formative quizzes. You will also practice what you have learned through a series of hands-on exercises focused on the subject you teach. Finally, you will reflect on the tools in Canvas through a shared discussion with other participants sharing this part of our professional journey.

Course completion, including reading, online discussions, and assignments, will take approximately 10 hours per week for a total of 40 hours. Your time commitment will vary based upon your own level of experience with web technologies. Note: COM faculty who have taken this course report spending 3-5 hours per week.
