Canvas Help

canvas_logoCanvas is CBU’s Learning Management System (LMS) for all courses. Although using a strictly online delivery modality is NOT a requirement here at CBU, we want to let you know it is an option for you.

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

If you need assistance you can sign up for Canvas Basics Training here. Or just email one of our instructional designers & trainers for a one-on-one session:

Anne Guetschow at aguetsch@cbu.edu or Tyler Isbell at tyler.isbell@cbu.edu

CANVAS JOB AIDS

We have created a set of easy-to-follow directions called Job Aids that are designed to walk you through some of the most essential aspects of Canvas for your online or hybrid course. Click here to print these out or bookmark this page for easy reference.

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.

CANVAS MOBILE APPS

Canvas has two mobile apps. One for students and one for faculty.  As an instructor, you may wish to download both.

CANVAS 24/7 SUPPORT

AS a CBU instructor (and the same goes for your students) you and they have access to a 24/7 Canvas Support Hotline: 901.318.3024.
