The campus is presenting four webinars for faculty daily today through Friday, March 13, on how to use Canvas to hold quizzes or exams online, communicate with students, or distribute video lectures.

Each webinar, presented by an instructional technologist in Information and Educational Technology, lasts one hour. The topics:

  • Moving Exams/Quizzes out of the classroom and online
  • Making optimal use of existing tools in Canvas
  • Using recorded video to supplement or replace in-person lectures
  • Having a meeting or class session using Web Conferencing
