How to get training 

To help you with your training needs, Canvas offers a comprehensive list of Video Tutorials for Instructors in addition to an extensive catalog of documentation. See Canvas Instructor Guide.

While UNM's subscription for the premium Canvas Training Services Portal ended on December 31, 2023, the "Canvas Field Guide" will remain available. A "New Quizzes Essentials" course is available as well.

To receive one-on-one assistance with questions related to teaching in Canvas, drop in to a virtual Open Lab hosted by the UNM Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). Instructional Designers are available during Open Labs to answer technical and pedagogical questions. You can also review and register for webinars offered by CTL.

UNM Canvas Support is always ready to answer any and all questions you may have.

For a place to explore and hone your Canvas skills, you can use your Sandbox courseNote: it has a small storage quota and is not intended for course building.

When you are ready to start creating your course, if you are listed as Instructor of Record in the UNM Schedule, you can web-enhance it. If your actual Banner course is not available, you can request a Temp course.
