Build Your Future Course with a CDLI Canvas Course Template

As most of us will be teaching in a virtual environment through the end of the 2020-21 Academic Year, CDLI has created resources to help get your Canvas courses up and running. Build Your Future Course can be accessed by anyone and covers much of the information contained in CDLI’s six-month Course Design Program. This is an open course, so you can move through it as suits your needs and schedule. Additionally, CDLI is offering several different Canvas Course Templates for faculty to download and modify to get up and running as quickly as possible.

Student Orientation to Distance Learning

CDLI has developed an orientation to distance learning course for SU students. The course takes 30-45 minutes to complete and teaches students about how to be a successful online learner, academic integrity, Canvas and Zoom tutorials and help, and technical requirements and solutions. We encourage faculty to include a link to this orientation in their Canvas courses.
