Important Resources

The Office of Teaching and Learning Technologies will be hosting a handful of Canvas specific drop-in hours. These are open hours that any faculty members can stop-by and ask questions concerning canvas and even build their courses. In addition, we will be offering virtual training sessions for Gradescope and TopHat.
