With the Fall semester and Canvas transition deadline nearing, Canvas SummerFest—a week of free, online training on the new learning management system (LMS)—arrives at the perfect time to help you transition to the LMS. Scheduled from August 14 to 18, this year’s event features hands-on sessions on the best practices for migrating, designing, and delivering your curriculums in the system. Not only will each session introduce the Canvas interface and features, participants will also learn how to best use Canvas to meet their learning objectives through hands-on practice and facilitated exploration. SummerFest closes with a one-hour virtual Q&A session facilitated by the Penn State Canvas Training Team.
