Canvas Training Services Portal

Canvas has unveiled a new, robust Training Services Portal with both live webinars and on-demand, online training. Learn all about Canvas from setting up a course, to developing assessments, grading, instructional design basics, course communication, and more.

To access Canvas Webinars and Self-Paced Training: 

  1. Log in to Canvas. 
  2. Click the Help icon in the global navigation (at the bottom of the purple menu bar at the left). 
  3. Chose Training Services Portal from the pop-up menu. 

When you are logged in to Canvas Training Services, use the Learning Library to explore on-demand self-paced trainings. Use the Training Calendar to find live webinar training. Canvas has also created a detailed tutorial on how to access and use the Training Services Portal.

For brand new users of Canvas, we recommend starting with Higher Education: First Day Ready. This course includes training in configuring your notification preferences, utilizing the dashboard, creating a home page and modules, getting started with assignments and other assessments, and grading and feedback. It’s a comprehensive training that will get you and your course ready for the first day.
