An Improved Canvas Layout
Canvas is getting a facelift! Instructure’s new Canvas user interface (UI) will launch at Harvard on May 31st! The New UI is a significant step forward for Canvas’ design, and we’re excited for the ways it improves the user experience and makes the platform more efficient.
Key updates to the Canvas UI include:
Help With Fall Course Sites
Canvas sites for Fall courses will be available in June. Instructional technologists from the FAS Academic Technology Group will be available this summer to help you prepare your course site. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
First time using Canvas? ATG is here to help! In addition to email support and drop-in assistance at the Science Center, the FAS Academic Technology Group will be offering on-location office hours for faculty, teaching team members, support staff, and students in multiple campus locations throughout the summer and early fall. Our staff can help orient you to Canvas while assisting you in preparing for the Fall term.
