Training Course Sites
ELS has two Canvas training courses, one specifically targeted towards faculty, staff, and TAs, and another for SPH students.
- SPH Canvas Training: Instructors and TAs
- SPH Canvas Training: Students
You can use Canvas as your course home, including using it to share course files, collecting and grading assignments, building quizzes, and holding asynchronous discussions.
- SPH Canvas Training: Instructors and TAs: SPH-specific resource on using Canvas, including setting up your Canvas account so it works for you and building/editing a course site.
- Canvas: Create and Organize Content: OIT page with resources for instructors working in Canvas.
- Before your first online class session:
- If you have a Health Care Component (BAA/BAA+), you will need to complete a training before your Zoom account is activated. For details, see Zoom: HCC and Non-HCC Accounts.
- Download the Zoom app on any device you anticipate using and sign into Zoom apps:
- Desktop or laptop computer? See Zoom Client for Meetings Desktop Application.
- Mobile device? See Zoom Mobile App.
- Test your audio and video: Zoom: Join or Test Audio and Video.
- Using Zoom:
- Setting Up Synchronous Class Meetings in Canvas Using Zoom

- Recording a Zoom Meeting and Adding it to Canvas. (Note: OIT has asked instructors to record to their computers and upload the video instead of using cloud recording due to concerns about space.)
- Zoom Security and Privacy:
Use Kaltura to record short video lectures or messages to your class for students to watch on their own time, or to upload a recorded Zoom session. You can also use KalturaCapture to record your screen if you need to demonstrate something.
