What is Canvas?
Canvas is a course management system that supports online learning and teaching. It allows instructors to post grades, information, and assignments online. Canvas offers discussion boards, chat rooms for live discussions, centralized email (so you can stay in touch with your instructor and communicate with other students), and even a way to submit assignments and take exams.
How do I access Canvas?
You can access Canvas through your school's Community Site, Student Gateway, and/or Employee Intranet (if you are an employee). Clicking "Go to Classes" in the top-right of the site or clicking "Canvas" under the Quick Links section in the home page will take you to Canvas. You can also access Canvas directly through this link: https://tcsedsystem.instructure.com/
