You can get assistance in Canvas!

Faculty at Penn State have access to a new resource for assistance in Canvas — Virtual Office Hours.


The TLT Canvas Instructional Support Team is offering three, three-hour blocks of Virtual Office Hour consultations each week, beginning April 20. Faculty can request a 30-minute appointment in advance, or “drop in” for assistance during open slots.

The sessions will be conducted in Zoom, an online meeting tool similar to Adobe Connect, and are available for faculty at all locations.


Virtual Office Hour sessions are not for course training, but faculty can get help with issues related to working in Canvas.


To request a Virtual Office Hour session, visit After the request is submitted, you will receive a confirmation email and instructions on how to access the session with a Zoom link to the meeting.

Faculty are encouraged to schedule time slots for the Virtual Office Hours, but “drop ins” will be assisted during any slots that are not scheduled in advance.
