Canvas (by Instructure) is a cloud based learning management system (LMS) that is currently used by more than 700 colleges and universities. The pages within this guide draw heavily on the official Canvas Guides for instructors. We encourage you to visit their site for a more in-depth view of the system's features and capabilities.
Department of English Canvas Page
The Department of English has set up a Canvas organization to share important documents, forms, guidelines, and discussions between members of the department. It will show up on your Canvas dashboard or in your list of All Courses as simply "Department of English." Once logged in to Canvas, you can also access the Department of English Canvas organization with the following direct link: https://canvas.unl.edu/courses/17293.
Some groups within the department have set up additional Canvas organizations specific to their work. For information about these organizations, please contact the coordinator or director in question.
If you have questions or need help with Canvas, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or schedule an appointment with your IT support representative. For instructors teaching online, dedicated support is available from the Innovative Instructional Design Team.
