Canvas Setup and Help
Next semester is just around the corner. Here are TWO things you can do to make sure your Canvas account is ready to go!
1. Update your Profile to include a Photo
Students will connect better with you through "seeing" you.
It helps to clarify who is posting an announcement and/or discussion.
2. Add your Email Alias
Adding your OU email alias to Canvas allows you to directly reply to Canvas messages from your OU email.
Your default email at OU looks something like this:
Example: Sooner.the.Horsefirstname.lastname@example.org --> This is the email that is already in Canvas.
Your alias email is shorter and is usually something you have chosen.
Example: soonerTH@ou.edu --> This is the email you want to add to Canvas.
