If you have never taken an online course, you are strongly encouraged to participate in an orientation to online learning. We offer both online and face-to-face orientation sessions.
Note: If you are taking an Online Mathematics Course, MyMathLab will be used as the primary online tool throughout your math course. You will be oriented to MyMathLab by your instructor at the beginning of your course. Prior to the start of the semester, your instructor will email you a syllabus with directions for accessing MyMathLab and other important course information. If you would still like to learn about Canvas, where you will get your course syllabus and directions for accessing MyMathLab, consider one of the orientation options listed below.
This 40 minute walk-through is a guided virtual tour of Canvas. It can be accessed any time.Be sure to turn your speakers on to hear the audio.
