We know it’s been a long wait for some of you, but we’re happy to announce that your access to Canvas is right around the corner! We’ve been working hard behind the scenes and we are fast approaching the date you can finally log into our Canvas Learning Management System (LMS). Please watch for an upcoming announcement from IS&T that will give you the Chapman Canvas login link. Once you receive it, you will be able to log into Canvas using your Chapman username and password.

In Canvas, you will find the following two gifts on your Dashboard:

  1. A self-paced “Growing with Canvas” training course
  2. A practice sandbox

This training course and sandbox space will give you hands-on learning experience with many of the great tools Canvas has to offer. We hope you have fun exploring.

Chapman Faculty: Do you want to be an early adopter? We know some of you would like to start teaching some or all of your courses in Canvas as early as Spring 2020. If you feel ready to make this move, please fill out the Early Adopter Form.

Chapman Faculty & Staff: Please sign up for our available workshops or come visit us during the drop-in hours. You can also visit our website, Canvas Instructor Training, for further training details and guides. It is important to note that for those teaching in Spring 2020 we will not have all of our add-on tools for Canvas integrated with the system, so please keep that in mind as you weigh whether to be an early adopter.

Chapman Full-time Faculty: Are you an early adopter who is willing to do a Complete Course Redesign? We are excited to announce an incentive program for a select group of full-time faculty who would like to do a complete redesign of your course for Spring 2020. This is a cohort-based program with online training led by an instructional designer. Training will run from Dec. 1st until Jan. 24th (training time is 2-3 hours per week of self-paced study along with the time necessary for your particular course redesign). More details about the expectations and incentives can be found here: Complete Course Redesign details. If this sounds like something you’d like to do, apply here: Complete Course Redesign application. We’re eager to work with you!

If you have any questions about Canvas, early adoption, or the Complete Course Redesign, please contact us at canvas@chapman.edu.

Thank you for your patience and enthusiasm.
