Faculty Canvas Tutorials

Faculty are encouraged to incorporate this technology within their courses (whether online, hybrid or traditional face-to-face). Canvas provides faculty with many features and tools to enhance student learning and success, including, but not limited to, posting of syllabi, resources, and grades; establishing discussion boards, journals, and assignments; and communicating with students through email and announcements.
