To access Canvas, students will log in through the Walden Student Portal and faculty will log in through the Walden Faculty Portal. Both ways will take you to the Home Page of a specific course.
To access your classroom, navigate to the Student Portal and click on the course you'd like to enter. You will be brought to that course's Home Page. (If you are a faculty member it would be the faculty portal or if you are a staff member then the staff portal.)
The Course Home page is the landing page you'll see when you first enter a course. Let's review the navigation of the page.
As you scroll down the Home Page more content will continue to populate.
When you enter the course, you will see the Course Navigation Menu on the left-hand side of the page. From the Course Navigation Menu, you can quickly access all the important elements of your course.
The three stacked horizontal lines in the top left of the course allow for the collapsing and expanding of the Course Navigation Menu.
The Home page of the course is a one-stop-shop to view content of the course. From the Home Page, you can navigate to the other areas of the course.
The Announcements area holds all the published announcements within the course. The most recent announcement will also be visible on the Course Home Page.
The Grades area displays submitted and graded work as well as feedback given on assignments.
The Syllabus area allows you to view the long form syllabus of the course.
The Modules area displays the content of the course much like the content by weeks on the Course Home Page.
BigBlueButton is a video conferencing software utilized to provide synchronous meetings within the course.
