Canvas at College of the Sequoias

Canvas - Learning Management System

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Canvas (LMS) ​Learning Management System is the District supported, cloud-based, learning platform that COS uses for both online and face-to-face course facilitation.  Use Canvas to access your course materials, communicate with your instructors, chat with your classmates, submit assignments, take final exams and much more!  ​
 
Canvas is used by the majority of our faculty; however, it is not mandatory. For this reason, please clarify with each of your instructors if they are using Canvas as not all of your courses will automatically appear in Canvas.  A course must be published by the instructor before it will show up in Canvas.​

​How do I login a​nd​​​ ​access Canvas?

Your ​COS provided email address will be used as your "username" to authenticate to the myGiant Portal.  The myGIANT Portal​ is where you'll find links to the apps and services you need --and that includes CANVAS!  Once logged into the myGiant Portal you will see links to access many apps and services; such as Canvas, Microsoft Office 365 Office application suite, OneDrive, Banner self-service, NetTutor, LRC Reservations, etc.  

​Please visit Giant-Email​ and Login Assistance for more assistance.


Just enrolled and don't see your course(s) in Canvas?

COS enrollments do not instantly appe​ar in Canvas when you've enrolled in a course.  Our Banner (SIS) student information system -updates all enrollment activity -adds/drops/etc. 3x per day. Students will have to wait for one of the updates to run before their enrollment information to populate into Canvas.  Students on wait-lists are not officially "enrolled" in the course yet and therefore will not have access in Canvas. When the student is officially enrolled and in the course is when the enrollment will be pushed over into Cavnas.


 

Banner >>> Canvas - Update Schedule

​Monday - Friday: 7:00 AM, 12:00 PM, and 4​:00 PM

Due to the complexity of the Banner/Canvas integration, the update cycle is subject to change.  The Canvas Administrator will update all parties in the event that there is a change to the update schedule.
