Digital Learning 

Digital Learning provides technology support for University of Utah faculty working in both physical and virtual learning spaces. We have two offices to meet your technology needs: 

      • Milton Bennion Hall (MBH) provides classroom technology and audio & video services for both academic and non-academic events. 
      • Marriott Library (MLIB Suite 1705) provides course consultation services for Canvas and other online learning technologies and provides proctored exam services for online courses. 


Canvas is a new breed of online learning software, courtesy of Instructure. The interface is simple, clean, and open, and works with the tools you and your students are already using—tools like Facebook—to provide a more open, collaborative learning experience. Canvas is an incredible resource in tracking assignments, communicating with students, and helping students keep track of their grades. It encourages interaction and fosters learning. See all that canvas can do here

Canvas Guides is the online documentation site for students, instructors, instructional designers, parents, and LMS admins. Visit the Getting Started Manual to learn more about Canvas Guides. The lessons are continually updated online. The downloadable PDF manuals are updated every release. 

While it is not required, it is highly recommended that CFA faculty members activate Canvas pages for all of their courses. 

Quality Course Framework 

The Digital Learning group, the Martha Bradley Evans Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) and Continuing Education (CE) at the University of Utah collaboratively developed the Quality Course Framework, which is grounded in the research and literature about course development best practices. 

The Quality Course Framework incorporates a four-phased course development process and the essential elements of a quality course associated with each phase: 

      • Course and lesson outcomes stated as measurable objectives 
      • An organization structure that facilitates usability and learning 
      • Learning activities engaging students in a complete learning process 
      • Course content provided in media formats appropriate for the web 
      • A sense of learning community facilitated through specifically planned communication and student support 
      • Assessment, feedback and evaluation strategies that measure student learning outcomes as well as overall course quality 

Proctored Exams
