Connecting to Class
Students can access Canvas through their desktop and laptop computers as well as mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets. Some activities, such as quizzes or exams and composing longer texts are better done on desktop or laptop computers. Need help logging into Canvas? Read our Canvas Logon Information help article.
- Use the Canvas Student app (Android or iOS versions)
- Use a browser on your mobile device (Chrome recommended)
Is this your first time using Canvas? Or maybe you are looking for a refresher? We have developed Week Zero, a "course" to help guide you through the how-tos of Canvas. Week Zero is optional and there are no grades attached.

Please note, while using these free resources, some processes and details are different on CBC's Canvas, such as the logging-in process.
