Canvas is our learning management system! You’ll use Canvas to participate in your courses and communicate with your instructor and classmates. Most classes use Canvas in some form, so we highly recommend getting familiar with it!
To log into Canvas, use your ctcLink username and password!
Your instructor may invite you to a conference through Canvas. These conferences are hosted using a program called Big Blue Button and are accessed through the Conferences page in your course. These tutorials from Canvas will help you get started!
We do not recommend using the Canvas mobile app for anything other than messaging your instructor and viewing announcements. The Canvas app sometimes loses student work, including assignment submissions, discussion posts, and quizzes.
If possible, please use a laptop or desktop computer to access Canvas. You can check out a Chromebook from our Library!
Please note, some courses cannot be completed on a mobile device.
If you must use the Canvas mobile app, follow these guidelines:
All LCC students have a Google account that includes so much more than just Gmail! Your Google account also gives you access to the Google App Suite, which includes Drive, Docs, Sheets, and more! The best way to access Google apps is through the Google Chrome web browser, but all Google apps are available on your mobile device, as well.
Log into all Google Apps using the same username and password as your student Gmail address!
Here’s a quick overview of what you have access to as well as links to help guides!
If you have any questions about the Google App Suite, contact eLearning at eLearning@lowercolumbia.edu!
As a student at LCC, you have access to Office 365 for free! Visit our Office 365 page for help getting your account set up.
Office 365 includes most of the Office Suite, like Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and more! With your Office 365 account you can install the programs on your computer, access the Office apps online at Office.com, or use the mobile apps on your phone or tablet.
Zoom is a web conferencing software that many of our instructors use to host virtual classrooms. You can use Zoom on any device!
As an LCC student, you have access to tutoring for free, even online! The Tutoring
Center will be open virtually to help students navigate academic life online. The
same LCC tutors you know and love will be available for video appointments via Zoom.
Simply visit lcc.mywconline.com to view our tutor schedule and select a subject you need help in. Watch this video tutorial on How to Schedule a Tutoring Appointment to learn how!
If you are new to tutoring, you will need to make an account before viewing the tutor schedule.
For subjects LCC doesn’t have tutors for, visit etutoringonline.org or login via Canvas by clicking the “eTutoring” tab inside a Canvas course.
