Workshops Simplify Canvas Course Transition

Time to get excited: Carmen is about to get some major improvements. The Ohio State University is adopting Canvas as the new learning management system (LMS) inside Carmen. This means Canvas will now include new features, like SpeedGrader and course modules, to help you make the most of Carmen in your classroom.

If you are excited about Canvas but aren’t quite sure where to start, our workshops can help. Whether you’re familiar with Canvas or just getting started, we have a variety of workshops to help you build and hone your skills in our new LMS and prepare for the fall semester.

Get familiar with the tools coming to Carmen this semester by attending one of our upcoming workshops:
