Canvas

CMN has implemented a new Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas. Canvas is a web-based LMS that efficiently connects faculty and students to support online learning and teaching. It allows faculty to share course content, post grades, and provide assignments. Faculty have been diligently working on getting their courses created. All courses at CMN use the Canvas Platform. Instructional videos can be found here: https://youtu.be/u_bDVqgOZ2o 

You will be receiving an emailed invitation to join each of the course(s) that will be utilizing Canvas this semester. 

Please be sure to check your CMN student email frequently. Contact your Instructor with questions specific to your course.

Virtual Learning

CMN may have to make decisions throughout the academic year to go virtual and limit physical access to the campuses. Virtual classes are designed to be taught face to face and “synchronous”, meaning all students and instructors are engaging at the same time. 

During our virtual week, some course content and assignments may be housed online and lectures may consist of video conferences without presentation slides. 

Please watch your CMN Student email for an invitation from your instructor to access their Canvas content.

Course Offerings

Traditional Face-to-Face on-campus lectures and in-class discussions 
These courses consist of on-campus lectures and in-class discussions. The instructor lectures and facilitates class discussion in the face-to-face classes and then students complete assignments based on these classroom activities. 

Technically supported Online instruction accomplished entirely off campus 
These courses consist of instruction accomplished entirely off campus, all course activity is done online; there are no required face-to-face sessions within the course and no requirements for on-campus activity. The instructor uses a learning management system for students to participate in online forums using online tools to facilitate discussion and interaction. All coursework is completed using the learning management system. 

Flexibly planned Hybrid courses including in-person and web-based online work 
These courses include a combination of face-to-face in-person classes, face-to-face online classes, and web-based online work. In a hybrid course, up to 74% of the course may be delivered online either synchronously (a class learns all together) or asynchronously (class members can learn at their own time). There is some flexibility in how the course is offered with some of the traditional face-to-face instruction being replaced with web-based online learning (e.g., video lectures, online discussions, or other class activities) via the Learning Management System. Face-to-face in-person time requirements will vary between hybrid courses and will be determined by the instructor. 

Hands-on Lab and Shop learning flexibly scheduled for low-contact safety 
These courses consist of the instructor using a learning management system which enables students to participate in online forums using online tools to facilitate discussion and interaction. Students will use the lab for hands-on learning. Some face-to-face labs may also be replaced by virtual, online work.
