Consider adding quick links in your Canvas course to support services offered to Clemson students.
Educational growth is multidimensional as learners not only need access to the educational materials, they need to have the resources to help them succeed academically, remain physically and mentally well, and have the support for applying their education to their chosen fields.
Below is a list of resources to include in your Canvas course site. In addition to placing these in the syllabus, create a page with brief descriptions of these resources and a link to the web pages where they can get the help they need. Slot this page into a Start Here module in your Canvas site so learners can quickly find the help they need.
The Faculty Resource Center page, resources to share with your students, is a fantastic place to check out after reviewing the types of resources you should consider having for your learners.

Check out the recorded session to learn about common copyright violations in online teaching and how to avoid these issues by modeling appropriate copyright practices throughout your Canvas courses.
