Don't forget about Alludo

Alludo, your gamified PD, is still here for you.  Alludo provides you with opportunities to increase your knowledge in a large variety of areas. Additionally, users can dive into Alludo at their own pace, taking on as much learning as is desired. The possibilities are completely in your control. Game On!


Canvas Learning

Don't forget to utilize one of our favorite learning tools in the Canvas Help section. It is called the Training Services Portal(TSP). Once a user has clicked the "authorize" button to get into the TSP, the user has a few different options with the mode of learning. In the TSP, a user can search for videos, recordings of webinars, or click on the training calendar to find content-specific opportunities for live webinars. The live webinars are hosted by actual trainers who work for Canvas. These live webinars give the user an opportunity to watch and learn how to utilize specific components of Canvas.
