Canvas Resources

First time users: get started with Canvas, your online class resource!

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 that students use to access WebAdvisor, and that faculty/staff use to check their CMC email. Once you’ve logged into Basecamp, look for the “My CMC Apps” tab and the link to Canvas at lower right.

Your Canvas account is automatically activated and available when you enroll in a course or teach for CMC; instructors automatically receive a Canvas course for each course they are teaching. Students are automatically added to Canvas courses when they register. If you need help with Canvas, please contact the IT Department’s Service Desk.
