Canvas Templates

CDLI has developed several different Canvas course templates for Seattle U faculty to use to get up and running in Canvas quickly, including:

  • Once a Week Template (or for flipped classes)
  • Tuesday-Thursday Template (or for courses that meet twice a week)
  • Monday-Wednesday-Friday Template (or for courses that meet three times a week)
  • Asynchronous Template (for fully online courses that never meet synchronously)
  • Law School Template (for Law courses that meet once a week on a 16 week semester)
  • Tuesday-Thursday Law School Template (for 16 week Law courses that meet twice a week)

Our Canvas course templates can be modified and used regardless of whether your course meets face-to-face or online.

In addition, CDLI has a PDF guide which will help faculty learn how to use and modify any of the CDLI Canvas course templates.

Accessibility Updates: Beginning in November 2021, CDLI's Canvas Course templates have been updated to better meet web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG) level AA. Some of the changes made to the templates include:

  • Added a caption, code updates, and adjusted color and contrast levels to make the home page table more accessible
  • Other than navigational portal on the home page, all single cell tables removed and replaced with horizontal divider lines and headings
  • Ensured all images have an appropriate "alt" description or are marked as decorative
  • Adjusted heading levels to ensure proper nesting of headings
  • Removed all-caps titles

If you have students with specific accommodation requests, contact Disability Services to ensure your online course, content and assignments are accessible and address students' needs.
