This page is meant to be a resource for Compton College Faculty seeking information
on teaching with Canvas and the tools available to assist with creating learning experiences.
Logging into Canvas
To get started you will first need to log into Canvas. You can follow the written instructions: CANVAS LOGIN INSTRUCTIONS; or you can watch the video below.
How can you use Canvas?
- Keep students informed!
The DE Department has made a Student Support Hub available in Canvas where students can get information about services that the college provides and where to access them. Some departments have elected to maintain their own Canvas pages to keep students updated on services they offer.
If you are interested in developing a page to promote your area please contact us at email@example.com.
- Promote Services, Events, Special Programs
If you have something you wish to announce to all students in Canvas such as an event or new service you can fill out the Canvas Announcement Request Form to have your announcement posted in Canvas for all student to see.
The DE Department Coordinates multiple trainings each semester on Canvas and other
digital tools available. A survey is sent out to the campus community during the Fall
and Spring semesters for feedback on training topics of interest.
Fall and spring semester events are announced at the beginning of both semesters via the departments DE Newsletter, Vision Resource Center, and Professional Development communications.
If you are interested in more information on professional development please contact us at Distance_ed@compton.edu for more details.
