Workshops and training
Learning Environments are providing an extensive set of workshops and resources in support and preparation for the 2020 rollout of Canvas. These are available to both teaching and professional staff and are designed to be practical and linked to your teaching needs.
We recommend our in-person workshops for staff representing faculties, and for people who prefer to learn in a physical environment. We cover a wide range of topics, and these are delivered across almost all campuses and locations.
Live and recorded webinars
Our live Zoom sessions give you the opportunity to interact with the presenter from the comfort of your desk. We also offer a series of recorded webinars available online 24/7.
Self-paced online training
Enrol in this Canvas subject, specifically designed for those of you who learn best at your own pace, and in your own time and place. This training offers an in-depth look at Canvas including assessment and feedback, quizzes, and more.
Guides and support resources
Although most subjects are now live in Canvas, some staff and students will continue to use the legacy Blackboard LMS throughout 2020. For both LMS platforms, these guides will take you from getting started, setting up your subjects, communicating with students, through to assessment and feedback.
Readings Online enables staff to add, organise and control their subject readings and ensures copyright compliance in their subjects. For advice on other types of materials visit the Copyright and the LMS page or the University Copyright Office site.
