When do I have to start teaching in Canvas?

Chalk, after 18 faithful years, has reached its end-of-life. Starting with autumn quarter 2017, all for-credit courses will be facilitated in Canvas. If you haven’t already done so, please plan to transition any Chalk courses to Canvas ahead of your first teaching quarter.

Non-credit courses and organizational sites are scheduled to transition later this year. Outreach to transition these sites will begin late summer and continue through the autumn 2017 quarter.

NOTE:  Canvas transition for faculty in Booth, Law and Pritzker is being supported by their local support staff.  Check with them to find out more about your transition timeline and support.

Keep in mind that you can begin migrating your materials over to Canvas ASAP even if you are not teaching in autumn 2017.  We are happy to set up test courses where you begin moving and rebuilding content well in advance of your teaching quarter. Email us at canvas@uchicago.edu to request your test courses.

How do I get started?

  1. Request your winter 2018 courses now (CNetID login required; see our step-by-step guide).
  2. Email canvas@uchicago.edu to request a test course if you won’t teach until later. Discover and try out tools before you use them in your real course; migrate your Chalk course content over so that you have it for future reference.
  3. Take the self-paced Learn Canvas 2017 course for instructors from Lynda.com (CNetID login).
  4. Attend one of our upcoming workshops or walk-in sessions.
  5. Schedule a consultation to help evaluate your course and identify strategies to best leverage Canvas’ functionality.
