We can help you:
- Get started with Canvas

- Create engaging video lectures
- Learn and implement new learning technology
- Organize your course to help students stay on track
- Build activities that facilitate a variety of assessment methods (like peer review)
To get started, please contact us.
For course development help, contact us at least 4 weeks before the first day of your course.
Need help getting started on your Canvas course website?
As a first step, request a course site on Canvas. Canvas sites are not generated automatically for every course; they are created upon request by the instructor.
Course site requests should be submitted no later than 3 weeks prior to the start of the semester.
The Penn Canvas Support team at the Library completes new course site requests and offers assistance with technical issues related to Canvas. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions related to site requests.
