Canvas :: Canvas - Getting started with Canvas at UW-Madison (UW-Madison)

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.

Plans for Non-Credit Courses

The UW-Madison Canvas Transition Team is focused on transitioning credit-based courses to Canvas, first. The team is not yet in a position to support the transition of non-credit courses at this time. This is true regardless of whether or not the non-credit course participants have NetIDs. The Canvas Transition Team will communicate a timeline for non-credit course conversions to Canvas in early 2017.

Canvas sandbox courses are available for those who wish to experiment with Canvas and begin designing courses in the meantime. Requests can be submitted through the Canvas Course Request form.

Canvas Support and Training
