If you would like to learn more about online course delivery or about how to use a hybrid delivery modality (i.e., part online, part traditional classroom delivery modality) the whole OLET team is here to support you.
CANVAS COURSE SET-UP
A Canvas Production Course Shell is automatically waiting for you inside Canvas EACH semester for all classes that you teach — online or traditional classroom. Canvas takes the administrative burdens out of teaching and grading so you can focus on creating and sustaining strong teaching, cognitive, and social presences in your traditional, hybrid, or virtual classrooms.
TUTORING IN CANVAS

SELF-PACED LEARNING ABOUT CANVAS
Inside Canvas, there are many helpful guides. Login to Canvas with your CBU login. On the Global Navigation Menu, click Help. Then, Search the Canvas Guides, and choose among Canvas Guides (especially, the Instructor Guide found there), or, Practice Guides, or Video Guides (choose this one if you would rather watch a video than read about how to do something) to name few.
