On-Campus Canvas Training by Instructure – August 7-9, 2018
Georgia Tech has begun the migration of courses from T-Square to Canvas, Georgia Tech’s new learning management system (LMS). Since all courses must migrate to Canvas by the end of the Fall 2018 semester, instructors are strongly encouraged to migrate courses to Canvas and begin development now. In order to facilitate migration, Instructure will return to campus from Tuesday, August 7th through Thursday, August 9th to provide on-campus Canvas training for all interested GT faculty, TA’s, and staff. This includes beginning, advanced, and speciality Canvas training and will be held in Klaus 1207.

To find out about and/or sign up for upcoming training sessions, please visit http://canvas.gatech.edu/training. If you have questions about training or the migration of courses, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Canvas support team at canvas@gatech.edu.
