FSC150 Teaching in Canvas


Description: Faculty Success Center 150 (FSC150) Teaching in Canvas is a facilitated online training course to prepare you to successfully use Canvas either in your online or hybrid course, or to supplement your on-site or remote course. Assessments include quizzes, discussions, and hands-on assignments. You will work simultaneously in a Canvas development course to create your own course content. This course also covers laws and regulations for accessibility compliance, Regular and Substantive Interaction (RSI), and reporting Last Date of Attendance (LDA). To successfully complete the course, you will need to submit all assignments, and receive a total score of 80% or more. Estimated time to complete the course is 40 hours.

If you want to be eligible to teach an online or hybrid course, at the end of this course you will submit your own course for a final course review. Your course should include an orientation module and at least one-half of all the instructional content (modules) for an online course. Your course will be reviewed using the Completed Course Checklist.

You can work through the course at your own pace. This is a fully online course. There are no live face-to-face meetings.
