• Getting Started

    We recommend the following resources to teachers who are new to Canvas:

    1. Online Training from Instructure

    Recommended for teachers who are tech comfortable and who prefer to explore and learn at their own pace. The Canvas Fundamental Series webinars provide instruction on navigating Canvas, adding content, and structuring your course. To access these sessions, log into Canvas, click on Help in the left column and then click on Training Services Portal.


    2. Video Guides

    For users new to Canvas we recommend viewing the Set Up Your Canvas Course in 30 Minutes or Less video.View the complete list of video guides for teachers.


    3. Canvas Instructor Guide

    The Canvas Instructor Guide includes a series of short tutorial articles for teachers.


    4. Start Building a Course

    Log into Canvas through the NCEdCloud and Start A New Course.  You will see the START a New Course button on the right side of your Canvas Dashboard.  (If you don't see it on the right, scroll down and look under your listed courses.  Sometimes with small monitors these options appear at the bottom of the page.)

    Start a New Course

    Name the course (LAST NAME SANDBOX).  Anything you build in this sandbox course can later be copied into other courses.
