Getting Started

Canvas is available to the faculty with a CougarNet login and can be accessed through AccessUH.  The instructor can use the following steps to begin with.

Request a Course

You must submit a course request form to use Canvas and this must be done each and every semester. You will need your course number/section number to fill out the form.  You can use the "Course Request System" icon in AccessUH to request a Canvas course or check its status.
