Canvas Training
In accordance with Article 40b of Local AFT 1521, an instructor must demonstrate LMS proficiency by receiving certification in the Learning Management System. If you are using Canvas for an online or hybrid class, you must be certified.

Introduction to Teaching with Canvas
The introductory Canvas Training will provide an overview of the basic tools in Canvas and prepare you for your online class. You will have access to a shell, learn the features of Canvas, and engage in actual exercises. In order to become certified, you must successfully complete the course with a score of 80% or more. Certification must be completed no later than seven (7) calendar days prior to the first day of the semester.

LAVC Distance Education provides three types of training:

  • Face-to-Face
    One-day session, plus an additional two weeks to complete the assignments.

  • Advanced Canvas
    The advanced course is designed for faculty who have already been trained in Canvas and have set up course shells. Topics will include discussion and assignment features, rubrics, groups, speed grader, implementing the OEI rubric for course design and using Canvas to interact more with your students through Adaptive Learning.

  • Self-Paced
    Ongoing for a limited time, at your convenience, but registration is required.Classes are limited to 20 students. Registration is required for all Canvas Training except the Drop-In Help sessions.

Please Note:
If you have used Canvas at another school, you do not need to take the LAVC training. However, you need to provide the DE Coordinator access to your website from the other school so she can confirm that you have taught using Canvas. She can be contacted at distanceed@lavc.edu.
