In my previous post I raved about how great Lynda.com is and how wonderful that all CA Community College workers now have free access to this fabulous learning resource. Well, the Lynda.com hippie love fest continues as I see that they’ve recently added an amazing course on using Canvas.
Learn Canvas 2016 is a 2 hour course taught by Oliver Schinkten that covers all of the basics. About Oliver… “He is an expert in learning and teaching, specializing in supporting educators as they work to empower their students.” – Lynda.com bio
Even if you are familiar with Canvas there’s a lot you can learn in this course including creating rubrics, adjusting grading schemes and the ins and outs of group discussions. I highly recommend it.
As with all Lynda.com courses, you can skip around to the parts you need if you do not wish to view the entire course sequentially.
If you don’t have your free Lynda.com account yet, you can read my previous blog post or watch this video that shows the short registration process.
