Adding Students to Your Canvas Course

Please add students to Canvas using their Northstar IDs rather than their email addresses. Click the link above to see how it’s done.

Beginning of Course Checklist

If you do not have availability to attend one of the OTL Webinar sessions on Monday August 16th, please review the Beginning of Course Checklist before then!

Student Login Troubleshooting

When students struggle to log in to Canvas, try these things first:

  • Check that they are correctly spelling their MTECH email address.
  • Check that they are using the same password they used when they registered in the Student Portal.
  • Check that they have tried an Incognito Window in Google Chrome.
  • If all of these fail, please have students email for help OR have them visit a Testing Center location (which will be open from 5-8 pm starting this fall).

If you contact OTL as the first line of support, we will send students back to Student Services for assistance! Please use the established channels for getting quick help.
