This guide provides instructors with an overview of our Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas. A companion guide for students is available at https://library.guilford.edu/canvas-students. Canvas is Guilford College's online home for classes and coursework: a Canvas course shell is automatically loaded up for all Banner-created courses, and instructors and students are automatically added to their registered courses.
You can log into your Canvas account at https://guilfordcollege.instructure.com (which you can also bookmark!) using your Guilford username and network password - the same password you use to log into campus WiFi and campus computers. You set this up with ITS when you are on-boarded: if you do not have an account yet, you cannot access Canvas.
This guide covers:
Many resources are available in the Canvas Instructor Guide, created and managed by Instructure (the company that created Canvas). Similar resources for students are available in the Canvas Student Guide. Resources from both of these guides are linked throughout these Hege Library & Learning Technologies guides to Canvas - but we have not linked to all of it, and they are great resources to consult when you or your students have a question or experience an issue.
If you have questions about or are experiencing issues with Canvas, please put in a Help Desk ticket via https://webhelpdesk.guilford.edu or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org – someone who works on Canvas at Guilford College will get in touch to assist you.
If you would like to learn more about how to use Canvas, check out this guide's Canvas Trainings & Tutorials page, and keep an eye out in the Buzz for the announcement of workshops, which are usually held at before the beginning of every semester.
