Canvas Training

To teach fully online, faculty need both Canvas training as well as training in online pedagogy. @one offers both courses -- one free and the other $85 (compared to Etudes at $300 for the two courses).

@one's Canvas training course, "Introduction to Teaching with Canvas," is a four-week, online course. It is currently being offered free of charge. Faculty must register for the 4-week course, not the self-paced course.

The second course, “Introduction to Online Teaching & Learning," fulfills the online pedagogy requirement. The course fee is $65. A reimbursement request may be submitted through Professional Development, but that must be done at least 30 days before training begins.

Most faculty take these two courses at separate times, but both courses may be taken concurrently. If not taken concurrently, "Introduction to Teaching with Canvas" would be considered the first course. That would allow use of newly-acquired Canvas skills to web-enhance existing face-to-face classes immediately.

To access the @ONE Training, make sure to go through the California Community Colleges Vision Resource Center(VRC) login to access the LACCD Portal: visionresourcecenter.cccco.edu/login/ 

Under Integrated Users Login select Los Angeles Community College District.

After completing each course, @one provides a Digital Badge. Send a screen shot of your Digital Badge with Identifying info (LACCD E-mail Address should be visible) to Adrian Brown at brownal2@lacitycollege.edu (and copy Rob Sambrano) to be added to the list of online-ready instructors.

When the time comes and a faculty member is considered for an online class by a department chair, the course content must be created in Canvas for the Distance Education (DE) Committee to review. The Canvas course shell must be submitted to DE for approval before the course is included in the schedule of classes. For example, if the plan is to teach a course online in  Summer, Winter, or Fall 2019, the Canvas course content should be completed and submitted for review in time for the Spring 2019 Monthly DE Meeting (Date To Be Announced). Once the Canvas course shell has been approved, the instructor who developed that material can teach that course online. Faculty should talk to their department chair well in advance of their plan to teach online.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding Canvas Subscription Training, please contact your DE Coordinator, Rob Sambrano, at sambrar@lacitycollege.edu
