OTAN Special Canvas Sessions (Spring 2023)


The Outreach and Technical Assistance Network (OTAN), in partnership with Instructure Canvas, is providing sessions to help districts provide equitable access to distance, blended, and in-person learning through the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS).

The sessions in this series will be scheduled through Spring 2023 as listed and dated below. Register for each session as they appear on the CA Adult Education PD calendar.


  • All are welcome to attend but participants must be able to sign into a Canvas instance in order to participate in these sessions.
  • Those earmarked for *Admins require that participants are leads or administrators of their agency's Canvas sandbox.
  • As these sessions are designed for CA agencies participating in the California Distance Learning Cooperative (CDLC), some resources, products, and services may not be available to non-CDLC Canvas instances.
  • Each session may have additional prerequisites which will be included in registration confirmation messages.
Registration for the CDLC Canvas title sessions can be found on the CA Adult Education Professional Development calendar under Sponsor "OTAN," when scheduled. If you do not see a title listed on the calendar and would like more information about it, contact
