Blog Post: Welcome… New and Returning Students

Welcome to Canvas,  your online learning space.

If you’re a new student, you may not yet be able to see your courses. Courses appear after you complete your enrolment, in September. We also have some open courses – feel free to add yourself.

Here are few tips to help you get started this academic year:

Zoom – will be used for your live online teaching sessions. Access your sessions. by going to your relevant Canvas module, clicking on the Zoom link in the course menu and clicking the Join button. You may be prompted to download the Zoom app before joining the session. (Note, if you are provided with a join url to join a session and you are prompted to log in, please look for the Sign in with SSO. option and log in with your LJMU username – username@ljmu.ac.uk – and password). Further information can be found on our Zoom Student Support pages.

Enrolment or Timetable Issues – Take a look at the Before You Arrive website. or the MYLJMU student webpage.
