You will use Canvas to access all your online classes at UNCG. It is an entirely web-based platform, and does not require you to download or install any software on your computer. That means you can access your classes from any online computer, whether you’re at home, at the local library, or on business in Tokyo. Through Canvas, you can access all your class materials — syllabi, calendars, supplementary readings, lessons and lectures. You can send messages to your instructors and classmates, participate in discussion forums for each class, take quizzes and tests, and turn in your written assignments. If you have not used Canvas recently, the Canvas Student Quickstart Guide will help you get started.
