Teaching Online



In response to the call to move instruction online, we have created a resource page with on-demand videos to help you get your course ready! 

To teach an online or hybrid course at LAMC, faculty must be proficient in the use of our campus learning management system (LMS) and have training in online pedagogy. Faculty can provide this evidence by submitting (1) training certification(s) from approved training course and/or (2) other evidence of prior fully online teaching/experience using the college’s LMS. Additionally, faculty should demonstrate the ability to create effective online learning experiences for students in Canvas.

  1. Please take these two introductory courses to become DE certified.
  2. Faculty may qualify for course fee reimbursement. Requests can be considered no earlier than 30 days prior to the date that the course(s) start and no later than the end of the second week of classes.

LMS Proficiency

The Distance Education Committee recommends the @One course "Introduction to Teaching with Canvas."

These simple, hands-on lessons give you the chance to master Canvas in your own practice course to build a home page, content page, discussion, and quiz, while also exploring how to use Canvas communication tools.

If you're new to Canvas, or just want a powerful refresher on the basics, this course is a great starting point, and you get to keep your sandbox to play in, experiment, and build your online material!
