What Can I Do NOW to Prepare for IOTL?

  • Take the FREE Self-Paced "Introduction to Teaching with Canvas" course through @ONE or the Self-Paced "Canvas Instructor Orientation" (click on +Join this Course). For fast answers or to broaden your Canvas knowledge, these are great courses that should be completed before (or during) the IOTL course if your Canvas knowledge is very limited. You will have a much better experience in the IOTL course if you complete either of these free self-paced Canvas courses. 
  • Join the DE Faculty Resource Shell for all your DE needs! Get up to speed on current DE requirements, such as Online Attendance Policies, Syllabus Statements, Welcome Letter Requirements, and Regular and Effective Contact.

  • Block Out Time for IOTL. This is a rigorous, interactive, professional development course with multiple due dates each week. You will be applying what you learn while building a course in Canvas, and this takes time. Please plan accordingly so that time limitations do not prevent you from reaching your goals. It is estimated that this course will take 40 hours to complete; however, this time-commitment will vary depending on your Canvas knowledge and understanding of DE course design principles, effective practices, and policies.
