Self-Enrollable Resources
Fundamentals of Accessibility eCertificate

All students should have the joy of learning, the freedom to grow, and the benefits of education! Accessibility of course materials and Universal Design for Learning helps make that vision a reality. In this self-paced, self-enrollable certificate course, get background and practical strategies, and also develop empathy for students whose needs are different.
Intro to Teaching with Canvas

If you didn’t use Canvas in Fall or you want a refresher on basics, the self-enroll Intro to Teaching with Canvas will allow you to walk through basic steps for using Canvas to offer a good experience for your students (and therefore an easier experience for you). Go to the course to self-enroll with your Cal Poly Pomona Bronco credentials.
Remote Course Design (RCD)

This course provides a step-by-step process for creating or improving remote courses. The fully self-paced, non-facilitated, asynchronous course is intended primarily as a reference and resource. Work through at your own pace and use the parts that you need. There is a self-assessment rubric that includes equitable and inclusive practices so that you can assess your own course and decide what to improve.
