Opportunity for Faculty: Work hands-on with learning management systems during two-part event

The Teaching and Learning Technologies team of the Division of University Technology, [U]Tech continues to lead an exploration of Blackboard and other learning management systems for Case Western Reserve University.

The team invites faculty members to attend hands-on demonstrations of two alternate systems: Brightspace by D2L and Canvas by Instructure. Representatives from each platform will highlight key features and walk faculty through practical exercises. Attendees may ask questions directly to experts, and provide feedback after the session. Feedback from course instructors will allow ITS to better understand how easily people can complete everyday tasks in these systems.

To accommodate varying schedules, presentations for both systems will be offered at three different times and in three different locations.

Overview of Brightspace: Tuesday, May 10

  • 10 a.m. in 356 Nord Hall
  • 1 p.m. in 340A (Learning Resource Center) School of Nursing
  • 3 p.m. in 203 Peter B. Lewis Building

Overview of Canvas: Wednesday, May 11

  • 10 a.m. in 356 Nord Hall
  • 1 p.m. in 340A (Learning Resource Center) School of Nursing
  • 3 p.m. in 203 Peter B. Lewis Building

Each session will last approximately 90 minutes. Registration is not required for the sessions and walk-ins are welcome. If you plan on attending, however, please let event organizers know your intentions at bit.ly/brightspace-canvas-days. Attendees should bring their own computer in order to participate in the hands-on exercises.
