Resources for Instructors
As you know, UTHealth is implementing Canvas as a replacement for Blackboard for all online courses. You are invited to explore the resources below in preparation for your migration to Canvas.
Orientation Course for New Canvas Instructors
This self-paced course is designed to familiarize instructors with the basic need-to-know tools and features of Canvas in an effort to prepare them for course design and delivery.
This course is broken into 5 modules (total of 19 individual very short lessons). Each module should take about 30-45 minutes to read, review and complete. It is recommended that participants complete the modules in sequential order; however, it is not required.
