We’re glad to see that you are interested in learning about what Canvas has to offer students.

So you may be asking: “What exactly is Canvas and why is it important to me?”

Canvas is replacing the Learning Management System (LMS) that OCC currently uses. Essentially this is where all of your online courses and hybrid courses exist. Therefore, it is important to learn what Canvas has to offer and how to navigate through the Canvas dashboard and its components. Please use Firefox or Chrome when accessing Canvas.

Canvas is the 21st Century LMS. Adaptable. Reliable. Customizable. Easy to use.

Mobile – yes, that means you can access it from a Smart Device! Canvas is designed to get out of your way and let you do your thing. Every feature, every interface, is crafted to save you time and effort and to make learning easier and more fun.

The resources below are designed to help you get to know the basics of Canvas so you will be prepared for your course, be it online, hybrid or even face-to-face.
