Canvas PD Mini-Course -

NCDPI has 4 free, one hour, self paced mini-courses available on July 1st to help you learn how to use #CanvasLMS. These courses will be available to register in NCEES and will help you design a more interactive and engaging course for the next school year. All courses recommended for 0.1 CEU Digital Learning Competency Credit are available for free in NCEES starting July 1!
#Canvas receives term dates from PowerSchool and by default, teachers do not have access to courses after the term end date. Your Canvas Admin is able to adjust the term access dates so teachers can have access to their courses after the last student day to wrap up the course.
