Community College of Philadelphia uses the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) to manage online and hybrid courses. In this section, students and faculty will find resources to help them navigate through Canvas.
As CCP prepares to be a fully-online college in Fall 2020, Online Learning is ready to support your initiatives to build online courses. Please contact us at your earliest convenience so we can begin working together.
We are prepared to begin training faculty via Zoom immediately. The following is a general description of the steps involved in the course building process:
- In the initial Zoom training session, faculty will be instructed how to prepare a design plan for their courses.
- Within one week of the initial training, faculty will attend a second Zoom session to receive targeted Canvas training and begin construction of their courses.
- Faculty will be contacted weekly to keep course building on track and address any issues that arise.
- When faculty have finished building their courses, the courses will receive a design review by the Office of Online Learning, followed by the departmental academic review and dean’s final approval.
Since there are several scenarios in which online courses are being built, these steps will vary according to the needs of your department. Please let us know when your faculty are available for training.
Please note that, per the Office of Academic and Student Success, the latest date for all Fall 2020 courses to be built, reviewed, and approved is August 1, 2020, although some course building scenarios have earlier dates. We are always available to answer your questions at any point in the process.
We look forward to working with you and raising online learning at CCP to new heights for Fall 2020.
