Technology Training Sessions

You can attend technology workshops to learn more about particular tools or drop in for one-on-one help around any teaching or technology challenge. These are the upcoming workshops and drop-in times—we look forward to welcoming you at any or all of them.


Technology Workshops

Learn about UBC’s core learning technologies by attending these tool-focused workshops. Sessions are held regularly, and you can use the registration links below to see upcoming dates and sign up for a time.

Exploring Zoom

Register for an upcoming Zoom workshop

Zoom is a ​video/audio web-conferencing and collaboration tool​ that lets you meet with students in real time and moderate classes, meetings, or other group collaborations virtually. Zoom is an alternative to Collaborate Ultra, if you need a tool that can accommodate higher numbers of participants and the ability to see more video feeds at once. Register to learn more about Zoom and best practices for using it to teach remote classes.

Teaching Online with Canvas

Receive an introduction to setting up your course and teaching online with Canvas, UBC’s primary all-in-one platform for delivering online courses. With Canvas, you can communicate and exchange materials with your students, as well as facilitate assignments, assessments, group work, and more.
