Online Learning

We deliver in-class course materials and online courses through Canvas, an easy-to-use learning management system. For online courses that require face-to-face interaction, you’ll participate through Zoom Meetings, a videoconferencing platform that you’ll access through Canvas. For more information, check out About Online Learning

Canvas access

Before your course begins, you’ll receive an email detailing program information, including how you will access Canvas. 

On the start date of your course, you will receive an email inviting you to log in to Canvas. If this is your first course at SFU Continuing Studies, you will be asked to set up a Canvas profile and password. Find out more about the step-by-step procedure to activate your Canvas account on our FAQ and Technical Support page.

If you don’t see the email inviting you to Canvas, please check your Spam and Junk mail folders. 

NOTE: To ensure you receive your confirmation and receipt emails, be sure to mark sfu.ca as a safe sender (check here for step-by-step instructions and additional info on SFU emails).
