Canvas Information and Help for Colorado Mountain College Faculty

This page is only intended to get faculty launched with Canvas. Looking for greater details and more information? The Office of Innovations’ knowledge base on Canvas and other tools in use at Colorado Mountain College offers an in-depth look:
Starting May 16, 2016, Canvas will be accessed via Basecamp only. After that date, you will not need to know a Canvas-specific user name and password any longer. Your CMC ID number will no longer be necessary for accessing Canvas. Instead, logging into Basecamp with your CMC network user name and password will let you proceed to Canvas. These are the same credentials you use to check your CMC email. Once you’ve logged into Basecamp, look for the “My CMC Apps” tab and the link to Canvas at lower right. You can proceed to Canvas from there with no further logins required.
Your first resource when you need help with using Canvas in general, or when you would like to learn how to use a Canvas feature is the Canvas Instructor Guide which contains extensive tutorials and explanations for teachers. If you are using a mobile device or tablet, please begin by consulting the Canvas Mobile Guides.  For more general questions and “how-tos”, please consult the Canvas Instructor Guide or the  For tech support with Canvas, please contact the IT Department’s Service Desk. Faculty and staff can visit the Office of Innovations website to file common Canvas requests online. Online forms available there include the request for a sandbox course, the request to add or remove someone from your Canvas course, the request that your multiple Canvas courses be consolidated or “cross-listed,” and more.
