Make digital learning effortless with Canvas

The potential of digital learning is limitless. But implementing it in the real-world can sometimes be a challenge, especially when you have to learn the ins and outs of a new platform. So, why not choose a learning management system (LMS) that actually makes your life, and the lives of your students, easier?

In Canvas For Dummies, a team of expert digital educators walks you through every important aspect of the hugely popular Canvas LMS. Written specifically for busy teachers hoping to make the most of the tools at their disposal, the book offers step-by-step instructions to design, build, and integrate a fully functional Canvas environment. From creating your first classroom home page to taking advantage of Canvas modules, you'll learn how to use the platform to engage your students and improve their learning.

Full of practical guidance and useful tips, this "how-to" handbook helps you:
* Navigate the creation of a blended learning environment and take advantage of the benefits of both in-person and online learning
* Manage collaborative environments and leverage Canvas modules to deliver a superior learning experience
* Integrate your Canvas modules with pre-existing, in-person material to create an intuitive environment

This book is an absolute necessity for any educator or parent hoping to improve student outcomes with the powerful tools included in the Canvas LMS.
