Canvas Crash Course for TAs
Have you heard the news? USF is moving...from Blackboard to Canvas! And we need your help!
Teaching Assistants play an integral role in the delivery of instructional content here at USF. Thus, you will be called on by faculty and students alike to help them navigate USF's new Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas by Instructure.
You can get up to speed by joining the Academy for Teaching and Learning Excellence (ATLE) for this Canvas "crash course" specifically designed for USF Teaching Assistants. In this session, you will be guided through an overview of Canvas including the use of global and course settings, as well as a variety of day-to-day tasks you might have responsibility for, such as:
- creating assignments, discussion boards, and quizzes;
- managing users and groups;
- posting announcements;
- and using the grade book.
