This document outlines resources on how to get started with Canvas at UW-Madison.

Credit-based Courses Available in Canvas

All credit-based courses are now available in Canvas and can be accessed by logging into the Learn@UW Course Dashboard. Faculty and instructional staff should contact the designated instructional technology point-person for their school or college to help plan for their transition to Canvas.

    Employee/Staff onboarding and training courses
  • Large‐scale training and compliance courses for employees
  • Large‐scale compliance courses for students

For questions about lifelong learning (enrichment or professional training) courses for external audiences to Canvas, please contact:
