We want to provide you with the right amount of support as you learn about Canvas and the new opportunities it offers. For this reason, we are offering a combination of self-instructional videos and learning materials, in addition to live workshops and consultations to help you get the most from Canvas.

This page is an overview of all the available asynchronous, self-guided learning opportunities. Consider clicking the button below to learn about the supported learning that’s available, including one-on-one consultations and live workshops situated in the USask context.

Getting Started

If you aren’t sure where to begin, we recommend booking a one-on-one consultation with one of our educational developers who can discuss your course design, teaching style, and how those might align with what Canvas offers. Consider using this as an opportunity to think critically about your course designs and instructional activities to see if there are opportunities for learning, communication, and assessment that would not have been possible in the past. During your consultation, you can learn about which learning opportunities are a good fit for you and your teaching. See our Supported Learning page for more details about booking consultations.

Canvas Community

As Canvas customers, we have access to the Canvas Community, a hub for all sorts of Canvas resources. This includes the following:

LinkedIn Learning Courses

Using our campus subscription to LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com), you have free and unlimited access to a number of professionally produced video courses in addition to the Canvas Community hub above.
