Abstract

In ADMG373, Training and Development for Administrative and IT support, we developed a tentative training plan for the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS). This consisted of several steps: conducting a needs assessment; developing a training strategy; and discussing the learning objectives, outcomes, and metrics. The methodologies we used, on which the needs assessment was based, included interviewing Bob Lupton, the chair of the INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND ADMINISTRATIVE MANAGEMENT department, and Delayna Breckon, the LMS Administrator. The training program is designed to introduce and educate faculty, staff, and students at Central Washington University (CWU) on how to operate the basic functions of Canvas. We initially designed the program because we saw that the LMS was new to CWU and it would be beneficial if there were additional resources available to faculty, staff, and students to access. The resources will offer support if users need help with a particular part of the LMS. Currently, the training program is in the early stages of development and has the potential to be implemented by CWU. The program is intended to be an orientation for faculty, staff, and students that includes a step by step walkthrough to accelerate their understanding of the Canvas LMS. If CWU were to implement the training program for Canvas, it can be used for any department on campus.
