Essentials of Online Course Management 4.0



Full course description

Course Introduction

We'll present options and examples to help you think through how your noncredit course will function on the UM System One Canvas platform and integrate with our other technologies. We'll even discuss a few critical differences between academic and noncredit courses.

Next, we'll walk you through various student enrollment, access and participation options. At the other end of your course, you need to understand your course completion options and responsibilities, and how to offer and use course completion certificates.

Lastly, we'll look at your course renewal options, copying an existing course or adding a new course enrollment section.

We have used Modules to organize course content by topic, included graphics and videos where appropriate, and provided many authentic examples.
