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.
