Canvas is the LMS platform that is used
by the District, and while third-party LMS platforms are available and
widely used, they must be integrated with Canvas when possible. This
will solve issues of accreditors being able to view discussion forums
and to verify that online assignments make up a student's
grade.Instructors who plan to teach in any mode which requires the use
of Canvas (online, hybrid or web-enhanced) must first complete Canvas
training at RCCD. This can be done fully online through Online Canvas
Academy, OR face-to-face at your college with one of the District
Educational Technology Trainers. In addition to basic instruction on
Canvas, the Canvas training covers administrative policies and
procedures for online instruction, 508 compliance & accessibility,
accreditation information, as well as additional district services and
resources available for distance education instructors.Check with your
college's trainer for a current schedule of availability and training
For the Online Canvas Academy, sessions open
each 1st of the month and close on the 30th day of the month. You can
enroll at any time during the month-long session, but keep in mind -
each session closes on the 30th of the month.
