How do I log into the Instructure Community using Canvas?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I log into the Instructure Community using Canvas?

Anyone can view and search the Instructure Community. However, in order to participate, you must log in using an account. You can log in using a Canvas account or a Mastery Connect account. Below are two ways you can log into the community using your Canvas account - via web and via mobile.
