To teach an online or hybrid course at LAMC, faculty must be proficient in the use of our campus learning management system (LMS) and have training in online pedagogy. Faculty can provide this evidence by submitting training certification(s) from approved training courses. Please contact your DE Coordinator for more information.
LACCD is offering Canvas training for all faculty. Please visit the Vision Resource Center from your SIS portal or by visiting this page
. To become certified to teach online faculty must complete two courses:"LACCD | Introduction to Teaching with Canvas" and "LACCD | Introduction to Online Teaching and Learning." [ProTip: The courses must be taken sequentially so please register for the courses in order so as Introduction to Teaching with Canvas concludes, Introduction to Online Teaching and Learing begins.]
LACCD | Introduction to Teaching with Canvas
This 4-week course will introduce you to the beauties of using Canvas in online, hybrid, and face-to-face classes. These simple, hands-on lessons give you the chance to master Canvas in your own practice course to build a home page, content page, discussion, and quiz, while also exploring how to use Canvas communication tools.
