How do I create a Development, Project, Quality Matters, or Training course?

In order to prepare content or use Canvas for non-semester work, you can request the following Canvas courses:

  • Development: Used to create new course content. You do not teach from this type of course; it is just a placeholder to be used to setup a course before the official Banner course is added to Canvas
  • Project: A course for uploading information that a group of people needs. An online course where participants can collaborate via discussions

    NOTE:  The Canvas Gradebook is NOT available to students in a Project course

  • Quality Matters (QM): Used for faculty participating in QM Review process. You can request either a QM Development or a QM Review course
  • Training: A formal training course where a user goes through all the material, takes a quiz that must be passed, and gets a grade. Example: Security Awareness Training
