Event description


This is a hands on session and access to a laptop is essential. Please bring a device with you.

As universities work to expand their online presence and provide flexible inclusive and accessible learning to their students, RMIT is transitioning to a new learning management system – Canvas.

As of January 2018 RMIT will be using CANVAS. In order to ensure a successful transition to this new technology, RMIT wants to ensure you feel supported.

We are happy to be offering face to face training sessions on 18 and 19 January. Andrew Del Mastro, Ishpal Sandhu and Jason Kendirian will be conducting four short courses to introduce you to Canvas.
