What is Canvas?

Canvas is a learning management system (LMS), which is a web-based platform that all schools and colleges use for teaching and learning. Our college uses Canvas, but other colleges sometimes use other LMS platforms. Learning how to use one type of LMS helps you quickly learn how to use just about any other type of LMS.

Why are we using Canvas in this course?

An LMS such as Canvas is the best way to provide a completely online course, such as Pre-A&P.

How do I login to Canvas?

Just go to the college webpage at stchas.edu and click on the Canvas link in the Quick Links tab at the top of the page. Just below the login form is a set of instructions on how to log in to Canvas. It’s pretty easy, really.

You have to click into your course in Canvas after registering to appear in the Canvas course roster.

How do I get help when I have an issue in Canvas?

If you think something isn’t working correctly or the functioning of Canvas just seems odd to you, then just click the Help icon (a question mark inside a circle) at the bottom of the left navigation bar in Canvas. I know, I know, I hate contacting customer support, but these folks at Canvas really are helpful and friendly. I promise.

If you have an issue with the content of our course in Canvas, then contact me about it. I’ll post specific issues that students have run across at below.

For more Canvas help, please use the Get Help feature in the navigation bar of Canvas (phone, chat, user guides).
