Getting the Semester Started
Pre-semester Teaching Checklist
Our checklist offers several helpful tips and resources that can help you prepare for and navigate through the semester. We regularly update this resource before the start of each semester.
Canvas - Learning Management System
Effective Fall 2022, CSUSM uses Canvas as the campus-wide learning management system.
Faculty can access the Canvas platform and find general information and support for
using Canvas from IITS.
The Faculty Center, in partnership with Academic Technology Services, offered training Canvas training on a variety of topics in Summer 2022 to support faculty’s transition to the new learning management platform.
