Online Learning

We deliver most of our online courses through Canvas, an easy-to-use learning management system. If your course includes face-to-face interaction, you’ll participate through either Blackboard Collaborate, which you'll access through Canvas, or a Zoom Meetings videoconferencing session. Before your course begins, you’ll receive an email explaining which platform you’ll use and how to access your sessions. For more information, check out About Online Learning

Canvas access

On the start date of your course, you will receive an email at 12:01 a.m. (PST) inviting you to join the course on Canvas. If you don't see this email in your inbox, please check your Spam and Junk mail folders.
