Registration for WinterFest, a week of free, online training on Canvas is now open. Scheduled for January 3–6, WinterFest arrives the week before the spring semester to help you transition to the new learning management system.

This year’s collection of hands-on sessions focus on the best practices for migrating and designing curriculums in the new system. Not only will each session introduce the Canvas interface and numerous new features, participants will also learn how to best utilize Canvas to meet their learning objectives.

With the transition deadline just 6 months away, now is a great opportunity to introduce yourself to Canvas. So grab a mug of hot chocolate and start the year off right! Simply click the sessions title below to register. Due to smaller class sizes, we suggest making your reservation early.
