Changes often force us to adapt in ways we’ve never experienced, which can be a major driver of personal (and even professional) growth and development.

Transition Period for Winter & Spring

During Winter quarter faculty may use PolyLearn or Canvas for their course. It may be difficult to know where the course is located at first.

This Winter, students will see PolyLearn within their Portal's > My Classes portlet just like before. Courses "shown" in PolyLearn can take up to 4 hrs for the button to appear in the Portal - click on the PolyLearn Home link in the blue box to open it now.

But, Canvas courses will not appear as a Button on the right - like PolyLearn.
Students can access Canvas in the Left - Single Click menu.

Single Click

When the student clicks on the Canvas link, the Canvas Dashboard will open. 

If the faculty didn't "publish" the course, then students will not see a Canvas Course Card in the Dashboard.

If it is unclear where to look, ask the faculty which LMS (PolyLearn/Canvas) they are using.

Courses published in Canvas will appear in the Dashboard right away.
