Canvas Essentials: This zoom workshop is designed to introduce instructors to Canvas for teaching face-to-face / remote, online, and hybrid classes. Participants will also gain access to the online course to complete their training.
Canvas Facilitation & Gradebook Training: This 90-minute session will focus on how to effectively facilitate your Canvas course. We’ll discuss ways to maintain regular and substantive interaction (RSI), grade and provide feedback to students, and use Canvas analytics. We’ll spend some time building out these features in your course shell at the end of the workshop.

Start of Term Access
Students can access Canvas courses four days prior to the scheduled start date.
Instructors should prepare their courses for student access prior to the start of term. Unpublish content or use availability dates to restrict access as needed. Instructors can also adjust their course dates under course settings to allow access on the first day of the term.
Early or Late Start Course Dates
Canvas courses with early or late start dates during the term will now align more closely with the start dates scheduled in Banner. Course start dates will be set four days prior to the scheduled start date in Banner providing early access for students in Canvas.
Students enrolled in late start classes can see their upcoming course listed under Future Enrollments under All Courses in Canvas. Students should check their My Chemeketa class schedule regularly for class information.
Past Courses in Canvas
Courses in Canvas will automatically conclude (change to read-only access) Sunday, after final grades are due in My Chemeketa. This only applies to courses that are scheduled through Banner (our college Student Information System). Development shells and other manually created courses will remain active.
