Canvas Training Services Portal

Within Canvas (In the Help navigation tab) lives the Training Services Portal. This portal offers you asynchronous training courses that you can enroll in and complete on your own time. Many of the trainings offer a badge at the completion of the content. To access the Training Services Portal, follow the steps outlined in this article: How to Access the Training Services Portal

This Canvas Community post further explains how to access the Training Services Portal and enrolling in courses.

In-Person Trainings

There will be 2 one-hour long trainings held on campus. These in-person trainings will be held during faculty workshop weeks. Workshops are scheduled for May 8th-12th and August 14th-18th. We hope to have a Canvas expert from UTC join us to help explain best practices for Canvas.

Internal Canvas Mini-Series

We want to keep Canvas at the forefront of everyone’s minds, so a virtual mini-series will be held between webinars and live trainings. These will be 20–30-minute virtual sessions that will cover an array of canvas topics. There may be some external Canvas experts included in some of the trainings. Below is a tentative schedule for the mini-series:
