Canvas is Here!

XCITE is pleased to offer an in-person and remote training workshop series on Canvas, UCR’s new LMS. This “Canvas Boot Camp” will take you through Canvas features, and begins before Fall term, 2022. There are three sessions offered over the first two weeks of September.

Get all of your Canvas questions answered by XCITE’s Instructional Design and Professional Development team! You can be ready to teach this Fall with our Canvas Basics session.

For those of you who have already taught in Canvas, the Boot Camp offers workshops on more advanced Canvas skills. Take any workshop that fits your needs or take them all. 

Every session is followed by an optional three hours of open time with XCITE staff, available to assist in building your course for Fall. Please be sure to bring your laptop if you want to participate in the valuable extra experience.

This is a hybrid series that will be offered in the XCITE Commons (Rivera Library, Rm. A101A) and streamed online. Time is 1:00-2:00 pm for every session.
