Online Student Orientation to the Canvas Learning Management System

All students enrolled in courses using Canvas are required to complete a one-time online orientation to Canvas, the Learning Management System used for online, hybrid, and enhanced courses. This self- paced orientation is available in Canvas within 24 hours of a student registering for courses and should be completed prior to the start of classes. On average the orientation should take approximately two hours. Students can access their Canvas courses on the first day of class only if the orientation has been completed and passed.

Taking the Canvas Student Orientation

  1. NetID/Password - To log into Canvas and take the Canvas Student Orientation you will need to know your NetID and password. To get these, you will need to activate your account
  2. Log into Canvas – use your NetID for your Canvas username and your NetID password as your Canvas password.
  3. Taking the Canvas Orientation - After you log into Canvas, click on the Course link at the top of the page and select “Student Orientation".

You will then need to work your way through each of the learning modules, in order, until you complete the “Wrap-Up Module.”.
