What options are available for keeping your class on schedule when there is a Snow Day? Canvas offers a number of solutions for making sure you don’t fall behind. Join the Office of Instructional Design for a look at the following Snow Day solutions:

Canvas Conferences 

Canvas Conferences allows you to conduct real-time, online lectures directly in Canvas. It’s a good choice when you and your students can be online at the same time. Broadcast audio and video, answer questions, demo applications on your desktop, share presentation slides, or share online resources. Learn how to manage this tool effectively for group conferencing.

Narrated PowerPoints

When you can’t be online at the same time as your students, Canvas can be used to deliver a PowerPoint presentation with audio lecture. We’ll cover the technical requirements for this tool as well as the pedagogical considerations.
