Recorded Training

In response to the COVID-19 situation, the IIC Department held a series of workshops and covered basic Canvas and online presentations. At the bottom of this page are recordings of those training from ConferZoom.  Please know that ConferZoom may be slow due to heavy demands.  Some of the six videos are still being processed.  Once done, we will post those.  To watch the video, click on the link "ConferZoom Recording" within the corresponding workshop.

Remember, if you need additional help, contact the IIC Team.  Complete a support ticket (email) for the fastest results.

Playback Tip--Fast-forward or backward.

Due to technical issues, some of these videos may not start until later within the video. Once you click Play, you may need to move the video playhead to the right to the starting point.
