Welcome to the Fall 2019 Semester! Here is what you should know for the Fall Semester.
Courses may or may not have a Canvas component. Instructors have the option to use Canvas for their courses, but not all do. If you aren’t sure if Canvas is utilized for your class, be sure to ask your instructor. If you are just enrolling in a course now, be aware that it can take 24-48 hours for that enrollment to move from WINS to Canvas.
Canvas 24/7/365 support is available for all users. Most students are already familiar with the D2L Support Form, but what happens when a student needs help with Canvas? You can contact the Canvas 24/7/365 Support team. You can find the Chat and E-mail options on both the Canvas Login Page and in the Help button in the lower left hand corner after you are logged in. If you prefer to call someone, you can reach the 24/7/365 Support at 1-833-811-3207.
Self-paced Student Training Course is available. Anyone interested in receiving an introduction to Canvas before the start of the semester can self-enroll in the state provided Canvas Student Training course http://go.uww.edu/canvas-student-training
If you are in need of software such as Microsoft Windows 10, Adobe Creative Cloud, or similar software for your personal computer, but are unsure if you are able to afford it, The 4U Program has great deals via OnTheHub!
Here are a few examples of the savings within 4U via OnTheHub:
As part of the Canvas migration project, there has been a UW-System team working on developing different course template options. This team will be visiting UW-Whitewater on Tuesday, November 28th between 1pm and 5pm. During this time, the team will be giving you a chance to have some hands on interaction with the course templates and will be seeking your feedback. This feedback will be used to guide the development of the final versions that will be implemented for courses inside of the Canvas platform. Laptops will be provided in these sessions. Please bring along any mobile devices (phones, tablets, etc) that you would also like to use for testing.
We are seeking feedback from ALL audiences that plan to interface with Canvas on campus. Please register for one of the appropriate sessions below!
