Canvas Development Funding

Funding is again available to develop Canvas master course shells and program templates. The timeline is tighter this year as the funds are available through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) fund for distance education. The development work and presentation needs to be completed by September 30, 2021 when the grant ends.
