• What is Canvas? 

    Canvas is the Learning Management System (LMS) that ESC Region 11 uses to provide online and blended learning opportunities.
    What’s an LMS? An LMS is a web-based software application that delivers instruction in an online format. Students can work through content anywhere by simply logging on from a computer or mobile device. Instructors can administer, differentiate and manage instructional content, assess and identify individual learning needs, track student progress, and report student growth.

    How Do I Log Into Canvas?

    Participants taking an online or blended course from ESC Region 11 will first register for the session at the ESC11 Professional Learning site. Our registration system "communicates" with Canvas every 2 hours.  Two hours after registration, you may log into the course in Canvas by following these steps:
    1. Go to https://esc11.instructure.com
    2. Enter your username, which is the email address you used to register for the course.
    3. Enter your password. Your password should match what was used during registration.  If you are unable to recall your password, you may reset it by clicking the Forgot Password? link
    Contact elearning.help@esc11.net if you have problems logging into Canvas.
