Canvas Basics

  • Friday, 1/11/2019 @ 1 pm, RBHL 115
  • Thursday, 1/17/2019 @ 3 pm, RBHL 115

Canvas is coming, Canvas is coming! If you’ve been putting off diving into Canvas this workshop will allow you to get started with just the basics that most of our teachers need. We’ll slow down the pace and give you a solid foundation to explore as we transition over the next semester from Blackboard to Canvas. 

This will be a hands-on course so please have a Canvas Dev Shell to work in. You can request a Canvas development shell by:

  1. Log in at https://my.asu.edu/courserequest/
  2. Select “Request a Canvas training / development / organization course“
  3. Enter a name, I recommend using a course number to identify the specific course later. Usually you should use DEV as your selection.
  4. The rest of the procedure is the same as requesting a Blackboard course. I recommend adding yourself as an Instructor. The techs usually do this automatically, but occasionally I've heard that they might miss this step. 

This workshop will count as a skills badge.

How to Copy your Blackboard Course Shell to Canvas

  • Friday, 1/25/2019 @ 1 pm, RBHL 115
  • Thursday, 1/31/2019 @ 3 pm, RBHL 115

This workshop will teach you how to create an export of a Blackboard Course shell and how to import that content to a Canvas shell and provide an overview of the imported content. I recommend taking my Canvas Basics or one of the Canvas introductory courses prior to attending this workshop. 

This will be a hands-on course so please have a Canvas Dev Shell to work in. You can request a Canvas development shell by:

  1. Log in at https://my.asu.edu/courserequest/
