Canvas is the university's online learning platform. Many, if not most, of your courses will utilize Canvas in some way. Some courses operate fully online through Canvas. Other courses use Canvas as a resource depository. Always check your syllabus and with your course instructor to determine how much you will be expected to use Canvas in any given course.
The department of Educational Technology and Media (ETM) has created a Canvas wiki, with everything you need to get started in Canvas and become a successful online student. Please use this wiki as your guide to Canvas.
