Online Training for Faculty and Staff
Topic Progress:


This lesson is designed to help give faculty a very basic foundation of the Canvas Learning Management System. There are a total of eight microlearning topics. Microlearning makes it possible for faculty to gain new knowledge in small bite-sized pieces, therefore allowing for the time and flexibility to learn the content at one’s own pace. Each microlearning topic is outlined in the table below, and is identified by the title and the approximate number of minutes it will take learners to complete the content. Learners can easily select the topic of interest, and while it is suggested that the topics be viewed in order, learners are not required to follow a predetermined learning path.


  • Getting Started with Canvas
  • Communicating in Canvas
  • The Canvas Calendar
  • Assignments
  • Quizzes & Grading
  • Groups & Discussions
  • Identify Resources to Learn More
