Introduction to Canvas

May 14 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Canvas is the Learning Management System (LMS) subscribed to by The University of Southern Mississippi.  All online classes are required to go through Canvas but face-to-face instructors may also use the product, if they choose. The platform looks complex.

This workshop is a crash course in the platform focused on explaining the complexities of Canvas and trying to make them seem simple. Topics covered in this session are:

  • logging into Canvas
  • using the global navigation
  • accessing your course
  • using the course navigation
  • modifying the Home page
  • creating a module
  • adding content
  • creating an assignment

This workshop is led by Mark Ferguson.  If you need more information, please contact Mark Ferguson at mark.ferguson@usm.edu, or call 601.266.6581.

This workshop is only available to faculty at The University of Southern Mississippi.
