Foothill uses Canvas as the learning management system to deliver online courses to students. Before you can teach an online course you must be certified to use Canvas.
Online Faculty Handbook
Once you are signed up to get certified to use Canvas you will be added to the Online Faculty Handbook. It is a Canvas site where you will be able to find all of the resources that you will need for creating and running your Canvas course. Here is a list of some of the topics:
- your responsibilites as an online instructor
- important components to add to your Canvas courses
- what actions you need to take before, during, and after the quarter
- resources to enhance your courses
- and lots more!
Once you log into Canvas you will have access to the Online Faculty Handbook Canvas site.
If you do not find the Online Faculty Handbook on your dashboard you can find it under courses and move it to the dashboard.
If you are new and do not have access to Canvas please contact us.
