Video Tutorials of an Online Course

Online Education

Fully online, hybrid and technology enhanced face-to-face classes at UT Tyler all share the same Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas. Therefore, if you are new to UT Tyler, or if this is your first time using Canvas, explore Canvas 101 for information related to successful navigation and participation online. Canvas 101 will explore many different “How To” scenarios every student may benefit from.

Remember, the only dumb question is the one that is not asked. If, after participating in Canvas 101, you can not find help with what you are looking for, this Guide provides multiple ways to receive help using the technology.

You also have 24/7 support in Canvas by click on the lower left corner Help icon.

After successfully logging in, the browser will display a dashboard with your course enrollments, plus a course link titled "Canvas 101". This is a hot link that the student will "click" in order to access the course. The student can complete the course at their own pace, and at any time while enrolled at UT Tyler.

Have fun!
