Whether you want to improve an existing course, solve a puzzling instructional problem, or build a new course from scratch, the OES instructional design team is here to help.

LMS Assistance

Doane's Learning Management System (LMS) is Canvas. All Canvas issues experienced by faculty and students are resolved by OES staff through support of the Service Center ticketing system.


Online Education Services provides training in course development. Our approach is evidence-based and focused on student success and engagement. We also offer training in the delivery of online courses, including effective use of the Learning Management System; developing instructor presence; increasing engagement, interaction, and community; and fostering intrinsic motivation.


OES offers a full array of Canvas training videos. These videos demonstrate how to do specific Canvas tasks as well as addressing the "why" behind how one should approach these tasks. Find the recordings of past training sessions here.
