Blended and Online Course Instruction

All full time and adjunct faculty involved in teaching blended or online courses must take and pass the Holy Family Orientation to Canvas and Online Instruction course prior to teaching the course (Appendix 2.2). Faculty are expected to then complete any updates to this course as they become available.
