what do I have to do to join the live lecture?
Emily, greetings and welcome to the global Community of all Canvas users! I'm sorry that you're having problems accessing your live lecture. Do you know if it was in Canvas Conferences? If so, then you should have gotten an email letting you know that you'd been added to a conference (live lecture) and that you can join it. You can also check this by going into your course in Canvas and clicking on Conferences (on the left). If Conferences isn't available in your course, then my guess is that your teacher and/or school is using a different program for their live lectures. If this is the case then you'd want to double-check your course syllabus, check the course resources, or message your Instructor.
Good luck and hope you are able to find/access your lecture!
