Getting Started

What is Canvas?

Remington College utilizes the Canvas Learning Management system to house all of its online courses. Canvas is a robust, state of the art application that will allow you to communicate with your instructors and classmates, submit assignment, complete quizzes and exams, review course content, and track your academic progress.

Accessing Your Online Courses

To login to Canvas, please us the link below. If you are logging for the first time, please select the Reset/Create New Password link to set up your login credentials. It is very important that you are using the email address that we have for you in our system. If you are unsure of which email is stored in our system, please contact your instructor or your registrar.

Answers to Your Questions

When can I access Canvas?

All students will have access to the Canvas system three weeks prior to the term start. Your preliminary access will allow you to review and complete the student orientation shell, which will help you become more familiar with the features and functionality of the system.

When can I access my actual course?

All courses will open up on Monday at 12:01am on the day of the term start.

How do I get help when I need it?

Once inside Canvas, you will see a "Support" tab located at the bottom left-hand side of the page. This support icon provides you with 24/7 access to the technical support helpdesk. You will also have many options for communicating with your instructors and other personnel to receive the support you need. If you need help with anything that would not be considered a technical issue, please reach out to your instructor first. You can also contact the HelpDesk directly at (844) 805-2213.

TIPS FOR ONLINE LEARNING

With our classes moving to an online format due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is important that our students are aware of strategies that can be implemented to help ease the transition to virtual learning. Please use the resources collected below as guidance on being successful in an online environment.

Managing your time online

The first thing you need to realize is that online courses are not an easier way to learn, but rather a more convenient one. To successfully learn online, you need to dedicate a significant amount of your time, consistently attend the program, be concentrated while studying, and fully commit to your learning process, just as you would do for a regular course.

One of the biggest benefits of online learning is flexibility, but too much freedom can pose new challenges. Find ways to structure and optimize your time for when and where you learn best and keep your learning on track.

Set aside time for learning: This doesn’t mean you need to find four-hour blocks, three days a week. Online learning is designed to be modular and flexible. You may find 15 minutes to watch a short video lecture and write a three-sentence reflection post. But of course, other learning activities will require more time. Be planful and dedicate time to learn as you would to exercise or spending time with friends.

Track deadlines: Add important due dates to a calendar so you don’t miss important deadlines.

Minimize distractions: As much as you can, minimize distractions both in your physical environment and your digital environment. Close web browser windows not relevant to your learning, keep the TV off, etc.

Communicating with your Instructors

Online learning comes with connections to both world-class professors and a global community of passionate classmates. Find ways to connect with these rich learning communities, from participating in forums to networking with peers.

While it may be constructive to look for answers to your online course-related questions independently, hesitating to contact your online instructor when you are stuck may be problematic.

Keep your instructor informed: Ask your instructor for help when you need it—let them know if you are ill, unable to log on, etc.

Virtually meet and interact with your learning peers: You are not alone! Introduce yourself, answer questions posted by the instructor in the discussion forums, and respond to your peers’ posts.

Create a social network group: In addition to forums, create a distinct space, such as a Facebook group or a Whatsapp chat, for you and your classmates to connect, share interests, and support each other.

Create virtual study groups: Keep the line open and find ways to connect with your learning peers in small study groups. Video chat apps are a great way to do this.

Give and expect respect: Especially during asynchronous communication like discussion boards and email, it can be easy to misconstrue someone’s meaning. Like you, your peers are real people. Do your part to foster a respectful, supportive community.

Online Learning Adapting to New Technology

The online learning environment can introduce a steep learning curve for those who are not comfortable with new technology. Fortunately, we have plenty of resources available so that all of your questions and concerns can be addressed in a timely manner.

Remington College uses one of the most popular Learning Management Systems in the world to conduct their online courses. The Canvas system is a user-friendly, supportive environment that allows those who are new to online learning to quickly adapt to their surroundings.

Ask for help: Whether it is your instructor or the support resources inside of the Canvas system, use the support resources we have provided when you run into obstacles.

Minimize distractions: As much as you can, minimize distractions both in your physical environment and your digital environment. Close web browser windows not relevant to your learning, keep the TV off, etc.

Always save your work: Save your work locally on your computer and/or in the cloud where you can easily access it. For example, draft essays in a word processing application or in an email to yourself then cut and paste your work into the course LMS (learning management system) to turn in your assignment.

Gather your tech: If the course requires video conferencing software, download the app and test well before a live lecture begins. If assignments are uploaded to a cloud service (e.g., Google Drive, Dropbox), make sure you have the required account details or access information in advance of a deadline.

Online Learning and Self-Care

Self-care is important to your successful learning experience. A healthy mind (and body) is a mind ready for learning. Keep a growth mindset as you adapt to new circumstances. Your success has as much to do with your effort as it has to do with your ability.

Stay healthy by getting adequate rest, nutrition and exercise. Take proactive steps to take care of yourself. Keep a growth mindset as you adapt to new circumstances. Your success has as much to do with your effort as it has to do with your ability.

Advocate for your learning needs: Ask for flexible ways of participating in the class that work for you. This is important for learners who require specific accommodations, such as a note taker or extended test time, but is also important for all learners.

Schedule breaks: Get up and walk around, go outside, schedule your distractions, don’t forget to move. Plenty of apps exist to keep you on task and turn off distractions, as well as remind you to get up and take breaks.

Maintain healthy habits: Your brain, like your body, needs rest and exercise. Get sleep, stay hydrated, go outside, eat well.

Online Learning Motivation

Online learning requires motivation to complete tasks, stay engaged, and make progress. When you’re not surrounded by classmates and instructors in a physical setting, it may be tempting to procrastinate.

Some online learners may start out fully engaged and then discover that their motivation wanes. When this happens, they may fall behind. Lack of motivation is a common challenge for all types of students. Be aware that this may be an issue and know how to overcome it.

Show up: The more involved you are with your education, the more it's top of mind. Log in daily to see course updates and class discussions. Connect with other students and share questions or perspectives. Communicate with faculty. If you need help, ask for it.

Schedule study time: You should make school a part of your schedule so you already have the time blocked off to check in. Remember to focus on one task at a time and use your time management techniques to make your study sessions more effective.

Practice positive self-talk: Talking to yourself in affirming ways can help you stay focused on your goal and improve your confidence. Ultimately, you are the only person who determines your success. When you tell yourself positive statements regarding school, you'll start to ingrain those beliefs and reap the benefits.
