  1. Canvas Simplified resource for instructors.
    This course coaches all learners—from basic to advanced users. Everything you need to know to develop a course is accessible via the table of contents (Modules). It is well-organized with tutorials via written, screen shot, and video instruction. Best practices are completely implemented throughout the instruction, providing nationally recognized standards for development of courses, and the resource also provides checklists, guidelines, and templates to facilitate ease of development. This also includes instruction on the use of integrated tools, such as the BigBlueButton, Smarthinking, Tegrity, and Turnitin, as well as instruction on how to universally design (ADA or 508 compliant) for accessible instruction. Please contact us to have this resource added to your course account in Canvas.
  2. Canvas Search Guides.
