Open Courseware refers to classes created and then offered for free in the virtual environment. See how others teach concepts online! Open Courseware can act as an inspiration for your own teaching.
Looking for built-out modules or courses, ready to adapt to your needs? Try looking in the Canvas Commons. You can access it within your course shell from the left navigation menu:
Modules can be downloaded directly into your course. Watch a short video by Dave Giberson on that here.
Courses can also be downloaded BUT BEWARE you will need to do so into a NEW course shell otherwise you risk overwriting your existing course shell. Call Instructure's Canvas Faculty Support and ask them to create a new shell for you, THEN import the course cartridge it into that shell. See directions below:
Directions from the SDCCD Online Learning Pathways web site:

Several universities have made available the educational course materials developed by their faculty.
The educational materials for each course may include syllabi, lectures, notes, powerpoint presentations, readings, assignments, and video or audio lectures, depending on the course, the semester, and the professor.
