Educational support for teachers
Do you have educational questions about e-learning? The topics can, for example, be quizzes, discussion forums, video in teaching, LEQ and course design in Canvas. Welcome to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Personal coaching on e-learning
You can also book a personal coaching session for questions regarding Canvas, course design and e-learning . Together with someone from E-learning, you decide how the coaching should go (email, Zoom, physical meeting, etc.).
Drop-in workshop via Zoom
At these workshops, we at E-learning are on hand to answer your questions about digital teaching and the system support/digital tools that KTH provides, such as Zoom, Canvas and Möbius. You find the opportunities in the E-learning calendar . The workshops give you extra support as a teacher due to the coronavirus and before access to work on campus.
Support on technical questions
Do you have technical questions about, for example, copying a course room to the new course round, log in or accounts? Don't hesitate to contact email@example.com .
Web guides and self-study course for teachers (on Canvas)
In addition to the information here on the intranet, you as a teacher have access to the course "Canvas@KTH - an introductory course" (external page) . You can freely try and create content and a structure that you, later on, can copy into your actual course room if you want. Log in to Canvas, and you will see the course room "Canvas@KTH - an introductory course" under "Overview" in the menu on the left.
The discussion forum in Canvas@KTH
In the discussion forum in Canvas@KTH (external page) , you can discuss and share ideas, solutions and experiences of adapting KTH education with e-learning technologies to the covid-19 situation. Also, general thoughts about Canvas and digital learning can, of course, be raised here. The forum is divided into five parts: Distance Examination, Web meetings, Education using Canvas, Video and Streaming and General. The purpose of the forum is to provide a space for the exchange of experience between teachers. No support will be available via the discussion forum; here, we refer to the usual support routes.

Requests for new features in Canvas
You can send your requests to email@example.com , and we will see what is possible to fulfil. In some cases, we need to forward it to the provider Instructure, but we will always let you know the outcome. Canvas also has its forum for requests (external page, Canvas Community) where you can make suggestions and see other people's suggestions and "vote" on them. Remember that it is a slow way to influence, and the forum is run entirely by Canvas in the United States.
