Online Orientation Instructions
Online Student Orientation to the Canvas Learning Management System
All students enrolled in courses using Canvas are required to complete a one-time online orientation to Canvas, the learning management system used at Faith. Some of the topics covered in the orientation course include how to be successful in an online learning course, how to get your computer ready to use Canvas, and navigating and using Canvas for your coursework.
This self-paced orientation is available in Canvas once you have received your Faith username and password and after you have registered for an online course. You should complete this orientation prior to the start of classes. On average the orientation should take approximately two hours. Students can access their Canvas courses on the first day of class only if they have completed and passed the orientation course.
