Learning Management System @ SVC

Currently the primary Learning Management System (LMS) we use at Skagit Valley College (SVC) is Canvas with a few courses using other LMSs.  eLearning is available to support faculty and students.  Check out this site often for updates in trainings for Canvas and other instructional tools, updates that will affect all online courses, and helpful guides to ensure you have a successful online teaching experience.  If you have any questions about any instructional tool please do not hesitate to contact us or use this site as a resource.

eLearning Updates

  • eLearning is looking for a few faculty to help the team expand support to all faculty across the district.  The eLearning Faculty-in-Residence (aka Faculty Mentors) will serve as a peer resource for faculty teaching online. Each mentor will work cooperatively with the eLearning team, other eLearning Faculty Mentors, and individual faculty members teaching online.  Learn more about the position and the exciting work the mentors will get to be a part of Fall 2015 quarter. (link to FacultyMentor.pdf)  
  • More ‘New to Canvas’ sessions are scheduled at MV and WIC Campuses for September. Check out the schedule.
  • NEW Faculty Checklist for online instructors. (link to FacultyChecklist.pdf)  Ever worry you are forgetting something?  Worry no more, eLearning has created a checklist for all faculty teaching online (link to FacultyChecklist.pdf) that will help you remember all the things you need to do before the quarter starts.   It can be a helpful tool when we all are so busy to get ready for the new quarter.  
  • eRequest forms are still available for Fall.  All online and hybrid courses need to be requested.  It is important that everyone that is teaching an online course fill out the form so the eLearning team can direct students to the correct LMS for their course.  To submit go to eRequest Form for Fall 2015.  You have the option to select Canvas, Moodle or other publisher sites for fall 2015.
