How it Works

Canvas logoCoastal Alabama Community College uses Canvas to facilitate learning in an online format.

All online, hybrid, and web-enhanced classes are offered through this learning management system.

To login to Canvas, use the "I'm Looking for.." dropdown at the top of the site and choose Canvas or click the Canvas logo on the Student page.

During the first week of class, please make sure you read all information in the Course Overview module and complete all required discussion board entries, assignments, and quizzes.

Most Internet classes require assignments to be completed with Microsoft Office 2016 or higher (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) unless specific software requirements are noted for each course.
