I2C – “Intro to Canvas” Online Class – Summer Sections Available

Friendly Waving PandaAs you know, as of Summer 2017, all Online, Hybrid, and Web-Enhanced/Supplemental course content will be delivered via Canvas.  We are offering one last I2C Session prior to Summer’s start, and two sessions during Summer in preparation for Fall.  🙂

Course Overview:

This 4-week online course will familiarize you with the features of the Canvas learning management system. We will cover Navigation, Content Building, Communication, and Assessment.  You will learn how the system works from recorded webinars, curated readings, and formative quizzes. You will also practice what you have learned through a series of hands-on exercises. Finally, you will reflect on the tools in Canvas through discussions with other participants.

Facilitator: Juli Van Dorn

Requirements for Completion:

The average time commitment for this class is about 10 hours during each of the 4 weeks, for a total of 40 hours; however, time commitment varies based on level of experience with web technologies.

Students who obtain at least 80% achievement will pass the course, and receive a certificate of completion.  For current, full-time GWC faculty, completion of this course is pre-approved for Salary Advancement Credits through IPD.

Summer Course Sections:

  • Monday, May 15 to Sunday, June 11
  • Monday, June 26 to Sunday, July 23
  • Wednesday, August 2 to Sunday, August 27  (Access to course materials on Monday, but facilitation/support begins Wednesday)

Class size will be limited, and -if needed- priority will be given to faculty members scheduled to teach upcoming courses.  This course is only available to faculty of Golden West College, Orange Coast College, and Coastline Community College, and the course content is customized specifically for Golden West College faculty.
