Parent Pointers: Understanding Your Child’s Canvas Account

Parents, we’re here for you! We know the transition to learning from home has added a lot to your already full plate. That’s why we created the Parent Pointers series! In our first session, Shara Johnson, a Canvas expert, educator, and parent, will guide you through the most important Canvas features for parents to understand from a student perspective. She’ll review these features alongside a simple framework we created to ease student stress and improve communication processes called the Fundamental Five—this will come in handy as you continue to help your child turn in assignments, keep track of due dates, etc. 

Join the conversation as it evolves. 

Over the coming weeks, we'll be hosting live stream sessions with some of our expert customers and Canvas Advocates as they help the #CanvasFam understand how they can use Canvas LMS to support distance learning.
