Technically, anyone can view and search the community. But in order to participate, you must log in. Anyone with a Canvas account can use those credentials to log in. Below are two ways you can log into the community - via web and via mobile.

Log into the Canvas Community from the Web

The easiest way to log into the community is from the web.

Note: You may need to allow browser cookies and clear any previous cookies for this site before logging in.

The Canvas login screen requires your login [1] and password [2]. Depending on your institution, login information may vary.

Click the Log In button [3].

Ask the Community

In the Canvas Global Navigation menu, click the Help icon [1] and then click the Ask the Community link [2].

Both options will take you directly to the community.

Confirm your Profile

Confirm your Profile

If you are logging into the community for the first time, you need to confirm your profile details. Once confirmed, click the Log in button.

Note: Your username is the name that will show up in the Community. This is the only time you can update your username. Otherwise, changing your username later will require some additional support from our end. (How do I change my Canvas Community username?)
