Canvas Training

Canvas is a world-class virtual learning environment used by over 3,000 institutions globally, and is used daily by over 20,000 of our staff and students. There are some steps you need to take to use Canvas for your teaching:

  • Ensure you can access all of your modules on Canvas as a Teacher.
  • Ensure your students can access their modules on Canvas as a Student.

NB: Before attending any training session, please ensure that you can log-in at using your UCC credentials. If you cannot sign-in, please contact The Canvas trainer will not be able to solve this for you during the training.
