The educational superheroes of 2020 are those undergraduate and graduate faculty who’ve had to transition from the classroom to the online environment in record time. It’s not been easy, but what an awesome learning experience! In this interactive webinar, we will share what student-centered learning is and how to achieve it online.
We’ll identify best practices for assessments and learning activities for online courses, and share some of our favorite tools to help faculty. Participants are encouraged to come with questions and share their experiences in transitioning their residential courses to a remote environment.
Welcome to Canvas, Pitt's new learning management system! This introductory training focuses primarily on the global functions of Canvas (the Course Dashboard, Calendar, and Inbox) as well as course settings and course user management.
How can Canvas, Pitt's new learning management system, help out to organize and present your course content? This training will introduce how the Pages, Modules and Files features work together to give you a flexible, dynamic home for your course online.
How can Canvas, Pitt's new learning management system, help you assess your students both online and off? This training will cover creating assignments, tests, and quizzes in Canvas, use the SpeedGrader tool to read, comment on and grade student work, and use the online gradebook
For instructors who are already familiar with Canvas or who have attended a previous Canvas training, we present a supplemental webinar covering tools for remote instruction that are not addressed during the Introduction to Canvas trainings. We will demonstrate the use of discussion boards, quiz moderation, groups, and integrations for both Zoom and Panopto, as well as some course-level settings that can make it easier for your students to access your course content from home.
