Winterfest 2018, a free week of online Canvas trainings, is offering 2 trainings centered around designing and personalizing content for your classes. The first training, Creating and Delivering Effective Content, provides all the necessary skills to create classroom content and a syllabus along with customization tools. The training will give tips on how to build all the content at once, but then grant access throughout the semester and outline an effective navigation to aid students in finding content.

The second training, Creating Assignments and Quizzes, builds off the first training to help faculty create resources, assignments, and tests to be given on Canvas. The course will guide you through the process of building a quiz or assignment then creating limitations on when and how assignments or quizzes can be accepted. The training will also cover question display options, quiz design options, and how students can interact and review created content.

Both trainings run for just under 3 hours through Zoom and are free during Winterfest 2018. More information including a link to register can be found below. A complete list of the Winterfest trainings can be found on the ITLD blog.
