As a new online instructor at a California community college, you will need competency in our common course management system (Canvas), online pedagogy, and an understanding of State and Federal distance education regulations.
Begin with Introduction to Online Teaching and Learning. This 4-week facilitated course is designed to provide an overview of state and federal guidelines affecting online delivery, introduce concepts of online pedagogy, and help instructors to develop online course policies. This initial course gives you a good opportunity to sample and assess the online modality before committing to teaching a fully online course.
Then, Introduction to Teaching with Canvas will cover all the basics of using Canvas, such as how to customize your profile, create announcements, develop learning modules, design a homepage, use Gradebook, and much more.
