I just want to make sure I’m able to keep my online class. To check in and keep our spot in our online class, do we just have to log into canvas, and select each class we are signed up for? Or is there something else we have to do?
Hi James! This might vary from institution to institution, but I know at my college just clicking on the course to view it does not prevent you from being dropped from the course for non-attendance. Course participation is required to prevent students from being dropped. This means doing something like posting to a discussion board, taking a quiz, or submitting an assignment. Many instructors have little 'first steps' assignments during the first week (like an introductions discussion board or a syllabus quiz) in part to check for this very thing.
Please check with your institution for the exact requirements. Contact your instructor or your Financial Aid/Registration/Entry Center department for more information!
All the best,Danielle Casey
