Our CDLI Canvas Course Templates are designed to help you quickly convert your face-to-face course to distance delivery for this winter or spring quarter. By using two dependable and fairly easy-to-use applications (Zoom Web Conferencing and the Canvas Learning Management System) you can continue to teach your course and communicate with your students. To help faculty with this task, CDLI has developed the following resources:
In most cases, using Canvas and Zoom in a thoughtful way will allow you continue instruction when you can’t meet face-to-face.

CDLI has developed several different Canvas course templates for Seattle U faculty to use to get up and running in Canvas quickly, including:
In addition, CDLI has an Instructional Continuity Guide which will help faculty learn how to use and modify any of the CDLI Canvas Course Templates.
If you have students with accommodation requests, contact Disability Services to ensure your online content and assignments are accessible and address student needs.
CDLI hosts workshops via Zoom to assist faculty in the implementation and use of the Instructional Continuity Template, Zoom, and Canvas. In the workshop you will learn how to upload the template into one of your own empty courses; set up Zoom meetings and office hours for the quarter; make sure that your meetings are automatically recorded and available to students as needed; and edit the template’s pages, discussions, assignments and file links to customize it for your own course content.
The CDLI Help Center provides in-depth guides, resources, and support for faculty and students using CDLI-supported learning technologies, including Zoom and Canvas.
Faculty and students also have access to 24/7 Canvas support through Instructure and quick Zoom support through the ITS Service Desk.
