Whether you are in a face-to-face, partially online, or fully online class, DVC instructors use Canvas to communicate with students. Instructors use Canvas to share learning materials, post and collect assignments, and transmit feedback and grades. On the course start date, you will see a new tile for each class you are enrolled in on your Canvas Dashboard.
Your Canvas username and password are the same as your InSite username and password. If you forgot your username/password, contact District IT:
For hands-on practice using Canvas, you can self-enroll in the DVC tutorial Canvas Launch Badge. This optional mini-course walks you through the Canvas interface so you can get comfortable using the platform before you step into the classroom. Follow step-by-step instructions to practice posting in a discussion board, taking a quiz, uploading an image, and more.
