Asynchronous [Self-Paced] Training

Surviving in Canvas Mini-Courses

Academic Technologies and VCU Online have collaborated to create a series of asynchronous self-paced mini-courses as an alternative to the Teaching with Technology Bootcamp sessions. These courses integrate both technological and pedagogical insights and are intended for faculty and staff who are interested in learning more about using Canvas to facilitate their course(s).

Canvas users with beginner to intermediate experience will benefit immensely from the knowledge brought forth by our qualified professionals at their most pivotal moments throughout the semester. Each course has a 10 day time limit from the time of enrollment and should take no longer than 1 hour to complete.
