May’s announcement that UF is transitioning to Canvas as the centrally-supported course management system (CMS) is creating a lot of teaching and learning activity buzz on campus! To help prepare faculty for the transition, UFIT is offering multiple opportunities to attend “Canvas Boot Camp” throughout the summer months.
Canvas Boot Camp
Instructors enrolled in this three-hour workshop will learn how to navigate within Canvas, and how to create pages, modules, assignments, quizzes, and discussions. Instructors also learn how to grade in Canvas. Boot Camp is a comprehensive Canvas workshop for instructors who want to get started using the Canvas CMS right away. Visit the Boot Camp registration page to see the schedule of available workshops and to register.
The e-Learning team has assembled some online resources and created a Canvas webpage. Please email or call e-Learning Support Services (352) 392-4357 -> option 3 with any questions you may have related to the CMS transition.
