The Student Experience (18 min.)
Learning how to use a new Learning Management System (LMS) is probably among a long list of challenges at the start of a student’s educational journey. This is why we created the Student Experience video; as a tool to assist these new students on day one, from opening a course invitation email to how one submits an Assignment file before the due date. This video will provide new students the basics to getting started in Canvas with their personal settings, course layout and communication, and submission feedback functionality while also giving other Educational roles a glimpse from a student perspective when navigating Canvas for the first time.
Canvas Student Tour (35 min.)
This Canvas course contains self-paced series of videos to familiarize students with Canvas (including profile, communication, discussions, assignments, grades, quizzes, and more). When students login to Canvas they will see the “Canvas Student Tour” course on their dashboard.
Passport To Canvas – This self-paced Canvas course provides everything students need to know about using Canvas in your classes. Learn about communication tools, navigation, assignments, quizzes, discussion, grades and feedback, peer interactions, and the mobile app. When students login to Canvas they will see the “Passport to Canvas” course listed in the announcements at the top of their dashboard.
