Getting Started with EEE and EEE+ Canvas (reserve a space)

One of the most visited websites on campus, EEE (Electronic Educational Environment) provides an ecosystem of instructional technology tools for instructors and teaching assistants to connect intellectually with students, provide course content and assess learning at UC Irvine. Within EEE and EEE+ Canvas, you can facilitate group projects, dynamic quizzing/testing, file-sharing, score recording and distribution, and much more. Each tool is automatically configured to match your course enrollment, so you can focus on pedagogy and content, rather than administrative processes. You can also allow your teaching assistants to collaborate on your course setup. In this session presented by Caryn Neiswender, you will receive practical tips and hands-on experience.
Prior to the workshop:
Please login to EEE to be sure your UCInetID and class associations are accurate.

i>clickers in EEE+ Canvas (reserve a space)
