COVID-19 Resources & Updates Learn More

Webster University’s School of Education faculty have developed a virtual Professional Learning Series to help teachers and administrators use the Canvas Learning Management system to facilitate online learning. These learning opportunities include three separate options designed for the needs of school districts and teachers. Our faculty have drawn from over 20 years of online teaching experience and seven years of using Canvas to develop these resources.

Canvas Professional Learning Series Overview

  • Individuals or groups can subscribe to the Teaching Resource Center, which is adapted from the WorldClassroom Knowledge Center. It includes how-to guides, video demonstrations, and step-by-step instruction for best practices using Canvas.
  • The Canvas Basics course is an online course facilitated by an experienced instructor. The course provides an overview of Canvas and its various features. This one credit course is designed for completion on a one-week schedule.
  • Canvas for Instructors is another one-credit online course that focuses on using the best instructional strategies to create effective online learning using Canvas. This course is also designed for completion on a one-week schedule.
