Online Student Quickstart Course in Canvas

Learning online can be a rewarding, and challenging part of your college education especially during all the Covid-19 uncertainties. We know that students choose online learning for many different reasons, but whatever your reason, we want to make sure you are prepared to have a positive learning experience.

The Online Student Quickstart Course in Canvas is a resource designed to give you the information and tools need to be successful in your online courses.

Perhaps the most important thing to know about online learning at Baylor is that each online course provides the same level of quality, content, and learning as our face-to-face courses. In fact many of your face-to-face courses may use the same supporting online technologies.

Even if you've taken an online course before, be sure to take advantage of the resources and support available.

Topics covered in the online student quick start orientation include:

  • Strategies for Success in online courses
  • Guides to using key Baylor online technologies to develop your skills for successful use in your coursework.
  • Quick links and information to valuable Baylor resources that will help you while completing your semester online courses.
