Canvas is a learning management system (LMS) that provides private online spaces for students and faculty to chare content, collaborate, and provide feedback among peers.
Instructors have access to the Canvas Instructor Resources course. Access this resource in your Canvas Support tab, local in the global navigation menu.
Each semester, your department will update Jenzebar with the courses you will be teaching. Once this process is complete, Canvas will be updated and your course shells will appear in the Canvas Dashboard as well as the Courses tab. Once your course shell populates, you are welcome to copy content and make necessary changes to the course.
Following the end of the term, students and faculty will only have access to course as "View Only." Faculty will maintain access to copy their past content into current course shells and Sandboxes.
