You've completed Canvas training. Now what? Meet with an instructional designer to discuss design ideas and delivery strategies as you consider your online or hybrid courses. Meetings take place using Microsoft Teams. You'll need a microphone. Webcams are not required.

I Need Help Making a Video

For those faculty wanting assistance recording a video presentation, ODEL staff will help you record your content and help you learn how to create your own recordings going forward. These recording sessions are held online and require that you have access to a stable Internet connection and a computer with a webcam and microphone attached. The sessions will last only 45 minutes. Please plan to make the most of the time by having a presentation or good notes prepared. IMPORTANT: Please request an Ensemble Anthem account now (if you don't already have one), so it is ready by the time of our meeting.
