Canvas LMS

Page history last edited by mary.mcglasson@... 8 years, 9 months ago

 

 

CGCC Instructional Technology has developed a new program to allow faculty access to our production Canvas installation for Maricopa.

 

 

Canvas is the proposed replacement for Blackboard. We are planning a phased implementation starting as soon as late Fall 2012,  and complete cutover tentatively planned for Summer 2014.

 

Early adopters who sign up will get:

  • A faculty account on the official Maricopa instance of Canvas
  • A student view account, so that you can see your course exactly as a student would
  • Course shells for any courses that you plan to teach using Canvas
  • Priority support and training through the rest of the Spring semester and throughout Summer

 

While we recently received clearance to give a limited number of faculty access to this system, this is for course development only. We are currently not licensed to conduct live classes with this system, so you will not be able to teach using this system until such time as the Governing Board approves our move to Canvas. 

 

 

 

"So what's the catch?" you might ask...

 

Well, in return, we would like early adopters to share their newfound knowledge of Canvas as the migration kicks into high gear. This would include:

 

  • Answering questions and providing support during two 2-hour open lab sessions during the Fall 2012 semester (4 hour total commitment, flexible days and times)
  • Participating in a peer-support discussion board on Inside to help answer Canvas and instructional design questions from other faculty learning the system
  • (optional) Consider giving a guest lecture on your area of expertise in Canvas, either for your discipline, modality, or something exciting you might do in Canvas like SpeedGrader or Media Comments

 

Participating in this pilot program will give you access to the training and support you need to build your courses in Canvas, give you the ability to work on your course(s) over the summer, and give you the opportunity to give back to your fellow faculty members while helping Instructional Technology continue to do more with less!
