Canvas workshops are designed for faculty, instructors, administrative staff, and teaching assistants. This is an online workshop. Please join us online at http://upennsas.acrobat.com/canvas and enter your name to login as a guest. We will guide a gentle introduction to Canvas. Participants will log on to their Canvas accounts, explore their sandbox sites, start a syllabus, upload readings and construct a welcome-to-my-class page. Participants will explore recording video messages for their students. No prior experience with Canvas is assumed.
