E-Learning Blog: Canvas Open Labs and Spotlight Series

E-Learning Services is excited for the start of the fall semester and wants to help you get off to a running start! Our ever-popular Canvas Open Labs make a triumphant return beginning next Monday, August 15. We’ll be here for drop-in support, lending a hand and answering all your last minute questions. From starting course development, to adding assignments and arranging your gradebook, onto using technologies like Panopto, Blackboard Collaborate, or Proctorio – no question is too big or too small. And no appointment is necessary!
