Canvas Help For Faculty

Computer in classroom setting with Washington College Canvas login page visible.

Below are links to view sections of the Canvas Help Guides, examples of Canvas Courses and a selection of helpful videos. 


Note: In January 2016, Washington College switched to the Canvas New User Interface. The Canvas resources you view on our website may still reflect the old user interface; however, the functionality and location of most components remain the same. We will update resources which reflect the new user interface as Instructure makes them available.
