UCI Canvas Training for Instructors

UCI Canvas Training Center

Welcome to UCI Canvas! This training documentation is designed to help you use Canvas effectively, and in ways that will support your teaching goals. If you're brand new to Canvas, check out the "Getting Started" section which covers the basics of setting up and configuring a new course space. After your course space has been created, you can find useful information on things like creating and grading assignments in the "Going Forward" section. If you have existing course content that you would like to import into Canvas, check out the "Start a New Term" section. Several additional useful resources are listed on this page as well.
