With the end of fall semester in sight, new faculty and staff members are about to make their first appearance on campus in the coming weeks. If you are a new Penn Stater, or will be training a new member of the Penn State community, taking advantage of Canvas Winterfest could be a valuable addition to the onboarding process.

The final class of the free, online week of courses January 3—5, 2018 concludes with an introductory course to Canvas on Friday, January 5. The course covers key features and tools within Canvas along with best practices when using Canvas as a faculty or staff member. For a new faculty or staff member the one hour training may be particularly helpful to identify how Canvas will be used in their department and how to locate support resources.
