Supporting Online Learning and Teaching
Online learning is experiencing rapid growth. In 2018, Canvas hosted almost 9,000 students. We’ll help you embrace online learning, understand it, and enjoy it. Extend your reach. Visit our Online Teaching Support page for more information.
Supporting Multimedia Development
Thanks to research in cognitive science, educational psychology, and the relatively new field of neuroandragogy, which studies the adult brain and its cognitive functions, we now know more about how learning occurs in the brain than ever before. This research has practical implications and is changing the way we think about and use PowerPoint and other common multimedia formats. Transitioning your PowerPoint to online? We’ll help ease the process with tools, resources and support. Visit our Presentation Development page for information and resources.
