Canvas Boot Camp Returns LIVE and In-Person for 2021!

OIT Canvas Boot Camp LIVEJust in time for back to school, the popular OIT Canvas Boot Camp returns LIVE and in-person. The Canvas Boot Camp is a way for faculty to get up and going using the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) with short training sessions during this two-day workshop.

You can learn how to take your course in the Canvas LMS to the next level with tips for your Syllabus, organizing your Gradebook, using the Calendar to keep students on task, and even learn a few tips and tricks that can make your life easier. Feel free to come and go to any sessions, both in-person and virtual, that are of interest. Also, hands-on support will be available throughout the day Wednesday in our open lab.

Join us starting Tuesday, August 17, 2021, in the Fondren Library East 110 Classroom for the 2021 Canvas Boot Camp.
