Student Canvas Training Modules

Last modified 9/28/2023

As part of the transition to Canvas, Instructure prepared two optional training modules to assist ISU students in learning how to use Canvas. One module covers Canvas overview and navigation, and the other Canvas Studio. Any instructor may utilize these modules in their course(s) to give their students hands-on training on how to use Canvas and Canvas Studio.

Locating the Student Training Modules

The optional training modules can be found in the Canvas Commons, and are available to anyone at ISU. They may be added to a course at any time. To find the training modules, search for student training ISU in Canvas Commons as shown below.
