Four Digital Ambassadors are rotating around Faculties and campuses to provide staff with "at-elbow" guidance. If you have attended Canvas training or have an idea of something you want to do in Canvas and feel you would benefit from some extra guidance, please contact the Digital Ambassadors with a brief description of what it is you'd like to discuss and a proposed date, time and location.
If you need help with using Canvas, e.g. "How do I ...?", please contact Canvas Support via the ‘Help’ button located on the left-hand menu within Canvas. Canvas Support is provided by Canvas employees (the experts) and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year via written and video guides, live chat, a designated UK Freephone number and an international number (charged at local rate).
Feedback from early adopter staff and students, as well as discussions with other institutions using Canvas has outlined the importance of having a clear useful front page on each Canvas course and a consistent structure across Canvas courses delivered in the same degree programme. Together they support students effectively and successfully with their learning by providing familiarisation of where key information and activities are stored.
Additional resources to help you develop your Canvas course(s) can be found on the Getting Ready for Canvas page.
Please follow the below checklist to ensure that your students can see and access your Teaching Canvas course(s):
A Student Help and Guidance Course has been created which breaks down some of the key areas that students will need to know in order to help them navigate and use Canvas for their studies. Included in the course are three introduction videos for new, returning and partner/distance learning students. Students and staff can access the course via the ‘Help’ button located on the left-hand menu within Canvas.
To support academic staff during their initial lectures, a Canvas First Lecture Slide (Powerpoint 1,049k) has been created which is intended to assist you when talking to your students about Canvas.
During September, Canvas Awareness Sessions took place in Faculties and Departments. These were designed to provide anyone in a student facing role with key information about myWLV and Canvas to help them with any questions/issues they may get. You can find a copy of the presentation used at these sessions here, Canvas Awareness Presentation (Powerpoint 4,233k). In addition, nominated staff in student facing and supporting roles have been given access to the Student Enrolment Registration Checker (PDF 239K, Downloads file) to help diagnose University specific Canvas queries regarding access to Canvas and Canvas courses.
