Getting started with Canvas - For students
This document provides information and tutorials about the things you need to get started with Canvas as a student.
Video: Canvas Overview
When you log on to Canvas you will see the Dashboard. The Dashboard shows all the courses you are registered for in Canvas (as a teacher, student, observer, etc). You can favorite your courses, in which case the Dashboard will only show these courses.
In Canvas you can change the display language so that navigation menus and more will be shown in the language of your choice.
Each student and employee who uses Canvas should set up their notifications so that they are received as often as desired and are sent to the correct point of contact. Do you want daily summaries sent by SMS? you decide.
It is possible to use the messaging service in Canvas, but this is not connected to UiT's email. Students must use mail.uit.no. Employees can also use Outlook from their office computer to access their UiT email.
Canvas has made tutorials that you can use when you have a question about how to complete a task in Canvas, e.g. find a course or turn in an assignment.
After you turn in an assignment your instructor might give you feedback. Check what feedback you have received on your assignments.
