Canvas Student Video Tutorials
The 17 video links below were designed by the Canvas Documentation Team to assist students in gaining a strong foothold in the Canvas system.

Getting Started with Canvas - The Student Experience (18 Minutes)
Caveat: At LAVC, you'll use your SIS user ID and password to log into Canvas. So, you don't need to create an account as shown in the video. When you log into SIS, click on Canvas just below the email icon.  You'll be receiving an email from Instructure to join your course. Just accept the invitation via email or directly in Canvas. Here is how you login for the first time:

  1. Go to the Canvas login screen
  2. LoginID/UserID: Your 9-digit student ID number ( example: 881234567)
  3. Password: 8888 + month (MM) + day (DD) you were born (example 88880101 for Jan. 1 birthday)
