For Students

Canvas is a new course management system that your instructors may be using for your course sites.   You can access Canvas from a web browser or via the app (Android/iOS) for smartphones and tablets.  To access Canvas, log in with your NetID and NetID password.

You can check both Canvas and Blackboard to see in which platform your courses are located for the current term.  Note: Not all instructors will use either Blackboard or Canvas, so you may not see all of your courses.

If you are not able to determine if or where a course site is located, you can contact your instructor directly and to ask which course management platform will be used for the course.  You can look for your instructor's contact information in the Georgetown University online directory.

If you run into any technical problems in Canvas, you can reach Canvas support from within Canvas by clicking on the Help button on the bottom of the left menu and selecting "Canvas Support Chat" (see images below).
