What is Canvas?

Canvas is a Learning Management System (LMS).  In other words, it’s a place where instructors and other departments on campus may put materials for you to access.

Not all instructors will use Canvas and the uses will vary. If you’re ever concerned about your Canvas course, contact your instructor.

Canvas can be accessed through the mySPU link on the SPU home page, but also by going to spu.edu/canvas.

How do I use Canvas?

There will be some nuances with regards to how Canvas is setup and used at SPU.  In spite of that, we believe this overview will provide a lot of good information.

How do I…?

What if I have trouble using Canvas?

All logging in issues should be sent to the CIS HelpDesk.

If you have trouble using Canvas, it is first recommended that you check out the Student Canvas Guides.  If that doesn’t resolve your issue, contact your instructor and/or create a ticket within Canvas.
