As soon as you have access to Canvas, you will get access to the ‘Getting Started with Canvas‘ course.  This is an online, self-paced introduction to Canvas.

The course consists of 8 lessons and takes approximately 13 hours to complete the entire course but you can dip in and out of the course at times that suit you.

Over time, more lessons will be added to Canvas on the more advanced features of the VLE.

If you can’t see the ‘Getting Started with Canvas’ course on your Canvas dashboard, click on the ‘Courses’ link in the global navigation, and choose ‘All courses’ on the pop-up dialog. Then choose ‘Browse more courses’ on the next page.
