Videos for Students Using Canvas

Most classes will be taught through the university’s learning management system, Canvas. Canvas is a cloud-based system that can house course materials, facilitate instructional delivery, learning activities, and assessment processes. You can access Canvas through the OSU portal at my.okstate.edu. There you will see your courses listed on the dashboard. The videos below provide you with an overview of Canvas and its commonly used features.

If you have difficulty using Canvas, you can use the 24/7 Canvas Support options on the left navigation panel of your Canvas site. Support options include Live Chat or the Canvas Support Hotline 1-833-742-0661. Live chat with Canvas Support can be accessed using the Help link on the left navigation panel on your Canvas dashboard.
