Introduction to Canvas Learning Platform (ICLP) Course

To ensure our new students are equip with the knowledge and skills to use Canvas in class, they are enrolled in a short, self-paced online course. This course is called the Introduction to Canvas Learning Platform (ICLP). The goal of this course is to provide students, with a foundation of knowledge in navigation and tools within Canvas. This course will guide students through the global and course navigations. Students will also practice participating within this learning platform by submitting a file to an assignment, completing an online quiz with varied question types, and composing a discussion post. At the end of this course, students will be prepared for using the Canvas learning platform at KCC by being able to identify navigation links to complete specific tasks and fully participate using the learning tools presented in the Canvas learning platform.
