Courseware Support would like to welcome new Canvas users! Whether you are using Canvas for the first time to teach a summer course or have recently requested a Canvas site for the Fall 2014 semester, there is no better time than now to learn more about Canvas through these great online resources:

Canvas Support for Faculty and Staff

The “Getting Started” tab gives an overview of Canvas and provides links to documentation and tutorials. The other tabs provide information on migrating content from Blackboard, creating and building a Canvas site, and using Canvas’s various features and tools.

Faculty Reflections

These are video interviews and demonstrations with faculty members who participated in the 2012-2013 Canvas Pilot. The topics ranges from broad (“Advice and Tips”) to specific (“Structuring Your Homepage”).

There will be more to come in the way of online Canvas documentation and training. Please continue to check our Canvas at Penn blog for updates on new Canvas resources.
