We are pleased to announce that we now have a Student Tutorial Course for students to become familiar with Canvas.
Students can reach this tutorial by going to Passport to Canvas-Student Quick Start Canvas Course or by going to the Help and Academic Resources button within Canvas.
Faculty may also self-enroll for the free self-paced version offered by @ONE at any time.
Course Description: This self-paced course will introduce you to using Canvas in online, hybrid, and face-to-face classes. These simple, hands-on lessons give you the chance to master Canvas in your own practice course to build a home page, content page, discussion, and quiz, while also exploring how to use Canvas communication tools.
If you're new to Canvas, or just want a powerful refresher on the basics, this course is a great starting point, and you get to keep your sandbox to play in, experiment, and build your online material.
Use this course as a beginning point on learning accessibility for Canvas or as a refresher.
The California Community College Chancellor’s Office created a “virtual professional development resource center”—a “one-stop-shop” for colleges and their employees to access effective practices, training, and other resources. As a California Community College employee, you have full access to the resources on this site. Free access to Lynda.com courses is included in the library of professional development materials.
Lynda.com offers a series of Canvas courses which are organized into chapters and divided into short individual videos. This is particularly helpful in learning a new skill from start to finish or to find a quick answer.
Here is how to access the Canvas courses offered by Lynda.com
Register at the Professional Learning Network. (It's free if you have an SMC email account.)
Click on the link called Learn (top of the page in the blue banner).-
Go to "Learner Home."
Type in Canvas in the search window.

Video is an essential component of an online educator’s toolkit. It can be used to bring the warmth of your human presence to your students, support students’ different learning rhythms, diversify how students express their knowledge, spark engagement and interaction, and construct your digital brand.
The CVC/@One & your California Community College peers ran a Spring webinar series that introduced many video tools and demonstrated how they are being used to support equitable teaching and learning at a distance across the state.
