Canvas Online Training

Although the primary purpose of the postdoctoral scholar experience is to engage in mentored research and/or scholarly training, some postdoctoral scholars may be given teaching assignments as part of their responsibilities, while others may be hired for the express purpose of teaching. With that in mind, the Academy for Teaching and Learning Excellence has developed a series of Canvas and Elluminate Quick Reference Guides and Video Tutorials. These resources are intended to aid USF Instructors and Postdoctoral Scholars that teach online or in blended environments (online and face-to-face).


Canvas is a web-based course-management system designed to allow students and faculty to participate in classes delivered online or use online materials and activities to complement face-to-face teaching.
