Canvas Orientation sessions explain how to use Victoria College’s current Learning Management System (Canvas). While the sessions do not cover course-specific material, they are designed to minimize the time needed to learn how to use the technology so that students can spend their time concentrating on the course content. All students taking an online course for the first time who have not attended Pirate Orientation are required to attend one of the sessions. Any student taking an online course is welcome to attend. The information presented is the same information presented in the Canvas portion of Pirate Orientation. These sessions contain valuable information that can help increase the chance of success in online courses. Distance education instructors may hold online or on-campus orientation sessions specific to their courses.
