Canvas Information

A Canvas Learning Site produced by the Faculty Commons uses modules to create a step-by-step guide for creating and using Canvas for your courses. You can follow from the beginning or skip around to the instructions that interest you most. Many of you will be relieved to see instructions on creating assignments and grading.

You may be prompted to log in using your UDel ID and password. You will then see a list of modules.

Faculty teaching remotely can use Zoom to make a recording. [Login to Zoom via SSO] Zoom cloud recordings are added to My Media in Canvas and can be published to Media Gallery for students.

View the Zoom Getting Started Guide (PDF).

Other Media

There are alternatives to recording in the classroom:

  1. Re-use previously recorded content by publishing it from My Media to Media Gallery.
  2. Upload other relevant video content faculty may have to My Media and publish it to Media Gallery.
  3. Work with the UD Library Film and Video collection staff to source videos for certain learning objectives.
  4. Work with our History Librarian Kaitlyn Tanis to secure online course material.
Google Meet is an easy and free alternative to Zoom and is recommended by Prof. Jaipreet Virdi for its closed caption features.
