Join us on Zoom at the start of the event.

Since the migration to the Canvas LMS in 2018, the Academic Technology Consultants and the Academic Technology Initiatives Team within OIT have worked with instructors and students to identify key aspects of Canvas course design. In this workshop designed for newer Canvas users, we will discuss some “quick wins” that can be implemented to streamline your Canvas course and reduce cognitive load for students navigating your online content. This training will also dedicate some time to covering the Cidi Labs Design Tools which can be used to create more engaging and navigable Canvas pages. By the end of this training, attendees will be able to identify several high-impact areas of basic Canvas course design and leverage the basics of Cidi Labs to design a course home page. 

Thursday, April 11 from 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. MT Canvas Accessibility, RSVP here

Join us on Zoom at the start of the event.

The Digital Accessibility Office (DAO) frames digital accessibility as “all people should have the opportunity to access the same information and services in the digital environment without facing undue barriers or burdens.” To enhance awareness and create a more inclusive environment, the DAO will facilitate a Canvas accessibility workshop. Since Canvas is a robust platform, this workshop will cover some basics, including how to proactively prepare your course for accessibility, design and structure your course for ease of use, and create accessible videos, quizzes, and digital content. By the end of this training, attendees will better understand how to make their Canvas courses accessible.
