Custom trainings

For schools, colleges and departments looking for custom trainings, the Learn@UW–‍Madison team is happy to help! Contact the DoIT Help Desk to set up a meeting and the team will help you provide your instructional staff the most relevant knowledge and skills.

Live trainings

The Learn@UW suite includes a dozen tools, from widely used options like Canvas, that may require training before use.

To help instructors make the most of the tools, the team provides live training and demos throughout the year. Those training sessions, as well as relevant training from vendors, are listed on today.wisc.edu.

Recorded trainings

Recordings of previous trainings are available on-demand in the Learn@UW–Madison Kaltura channel. Those include introductory trainings like Getting Started with Canvas as well as strategy recommendations like Considerations for Large-Enrollment Classes.

Student tech modules

Learn@UW–Madison can help students understand how to use supported learning technologies in Canvas with the Student Tech Modules. An instructor can choose which ones to download from Canvas Commons and add to their course as a starting point for communicating with their students. There are Tech Modules available for Kaltura, Honorlock and more.
