As you prepare for the start of Module 2, here are some resources to keep in mind:
The Syllabus Policy can be found in Section 9.1 of the Faculty Handbook. For a summary of the main points, together with relevant resources, check out the Syllabus Checklist page.
For help with Canvas, take a look at the Canvas Tips page. If you haven’t used Canvas before or you need a refresher, check out the video series Set Up Your Canvas Course in 30 Minutes or Less. If you have more specific questions, take a look at the Canvas Instructor Guide.

Check out the Best Practices for Condensed Courses post for tips about how to think about a condensed course differently.
