Hello Upcoming Online Teachers!
I am Tracie, your friendly Moorpark Instructional Designer and your guide through this training.
We will spend the next four weeks together learning how to use the Canvas Learning Management System and explore best practices for online teaching. Today or tomorrow you will get two emails from Canvas. The first email will invite you to access your Practice Shell; the second will invite you to join the OTTCC. If you do not get those emails by tomorrow please let me know.
During the course you will have the opportunity to experience an online course as a Student, and as an Instructor. In the OTTCC you will be a Student, and in your Practice Shell you will be the Instructor. You can access your shells in your “My Courses” on the Portal or directly at vcccd.instructure.com
Our course officially begins on Monday, September 9th and ends on Sunday, October 6th. You will have weekly assignments. Some of them will be completed in the OTTCC shell; others will be completed in your Practice Shell. Each week you will have a new module and new learning opportunities. If you complete a module early, feel free to go forward if you like. Successful completion of this training requires a grade of 95% or higher.

It is very important that you turn your assignments and activities in time. If you fall behind, you will most likely need to pause and wait until the next training is offered.
