Learning with Canvas
What is Canvas?
Canvas is your Learning Management System (LMS) at The University of the Incarnate Word. Throughout your academic coursework at UIW, you'll use Canvas to access items like course syllabi, assignments, discussion posts, files, meetings and more. An LMS is vital for establishing an online presence for each course in a given academic semester.
Please note, some in-person classes might use Canvas less than a more hybrid, online-blended course. You may use this page to reference common Canvas resources and guides to help you learn how to navigate the platform and customize the experience to tailor your learning needs.
Getting Started with Canvas
If you need help signing in, setting up your computer, installing a compatible browser, or other general technical help with your computer contact the UIW Help Desk or your campus tech specialist. Any concerns reported with Canvas to the Help Desk are routed to our Canvas administrator.
Note: Canvas reps and UIW tech support are unable to change course settings, edit content, give additional attempts, or take any actions in place of your course instructor - you must contact your instructor for these concerns.
