Instructional Technology Workshops
December is a short month as we prepare for finals, turning in grades, and graduation. So although the training calendar is abbreviated, remember we are still available for one-on-one assistance and small group-workshops throughout the month of December.
Instructional Technology staff also provides regularly updated online tutorials for faculty and students which are available through the Help button in Canvas. Faculty and students are encouraged to enroll in the online training courses at their convenience to orient themselves to the system.
If you would like training at at time that is not offered in the workshop schedule, please contact Dr. Nicole House at NHouse@deltastate.edu.
