Blog Post: Welcome new and returning students

Welcome to the Liverpool John Moores University Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Blog, we hope you’ve had a great summer and are ready to embrace the University experience. The TEL team help to support your online learning environment – Canvas and many other technologies. Take a look at our introduction to Canvas Video to learn about the basics:

Open Canvas Courses and Information Sites

It’s now even easier to access information about LJMU services from wtihin Canvas. Libraries, IT Services and many other University departments have developed an online space within Canvas to allow you to find information much quicker about the services they provide: https://canvas.ljmu.ac.uk/search/all_courses/ . You can still find resources on the LJMU website about these teams.

‘Welcome to Canvas’ induction site for Students

‘Welcome to Canvas’ is a new Canvas induction course for students. It’s an interactive introduction for students in levels 3 and 4 who are new to the institution. It introduces Canvas to students and allows you to become familiar with some of the core tools. It will also direct you to the mobile app and teach you how to configure your Canvas account. You’ll find it listed in the ‘all courses‘ area.

Canvas Dashboard

Once you’re enrolled on your modules, they should appear on your Canvas Dashboard. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, we’ve created a guide to help clear things up: Student Guide: Course Enrolments

Canvas Mobile App

Make sure you download the Canvas Student App to keep up to date with your course. Search for ‘Canvas Student’ in your app store. There’s a few other apps which you might find useful – try accessing the following page to find out more about LJMU Student Mobile Apps.
