 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?

Our Banner (SIS) student information system -updates Canvas with all enrollment activity -adds/drops/etc.  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 ​in the course is when the enrollment will be pushed over into Canvas.  Courses will be hidden until your instructor has Published the course for the term.
