Canvas Quick Guide (Student)
Alamo Colleges Students -- Welcome to Canvas!
During Fall 2012, the Alamo Colleges transitioned to a new Learning Management System (LMS), which means all of your online courses will use Canvas. You will login to your course through ACES, My Courses tab. The course content will be available by the first day of classes.
This Canvas Quick Guide is for students who have taken online courses previously and who need to learn how to use the new LMS. The goal of this guide is to familiarize you with the new LMS. If you are new to online learning or want to know more about learning online, then contact the Distance Learning Department at your college.
This guide has the following items:
- Features in Canvas
- Tools in Canvas
- Notification Preferences
- Accessing your online course
- Technical Information
- College Contacts
