In response to the rising use of Canvas, the full-featured learning management system adopted at the UW autumn quarter, UW-IT now offers after-hours support most evenings, when instructors often work. Get help with Canvas in person (at UW Seattle’s Odegaard Undergraduate Library), via email, or by phone 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Friday, and noon to 10:00 p.m. Sunday. UW-IT also provides 24 X 7 service monitoring and escalation of urgent issues.
Explore Baltimore from 1893 to 1988 through the pages of the Baltimore Afro-American, one of a collection of digitized ethnic newspapers provided by the UW Libraries. The published word has long provided a means of building identity, sharing viewpoints, and disseminating media images for ethnic, alternative, minority, or marginalized communities. The Baltimore Afro-American exemplifies the role of a non-mainstream newspaper in reflecting the diversity, vigor, and strife typical of any multicultural society.
Need some ideas about how you can design your course using Canvas, the UW’s learning management system? The new UW Canvas model courses let you explore, navigate, and get a feel for how to organize content, communicate with students, distribute and collect assignments, and even administer quizzes. Each model illustrates a different take on course design and shows Canvas's inherent flexibility, and new models are continually being added.
