Finding Courses in Canvas

Prepare Your Computer

Setting Up Your Webcam and Mic

Always test your webcam video and mic audio when using Zoom or Teams.

Prepare Your Mobile Device

Note: Students who are unable to afford a computer or internet service may be able to get technology on-loan from the university or purchase a computer at a steep discount. View the Dean of Students information on computer loans and surplus technology for more information.

If you are using mobile devices to access your course, use apps to access university services as a best practice.

Check with your instructor to determine if other mobile apps are needed or suggested.
