Online Student Resources for Fall 2020
An online resource is also available for all students. This course is built to provide you with as much information as possible about the various technologies you'll be using to learn beyond just Canvas.

You can enroll into this resources course using the self-enrollment link here, or you can access the student resources via the Canvas Logins page. 
Additionally, the Canvas & Online Student Resources KnowledgeBase document is updated regularly to ensure you have the most accurate information about Canvas, third party tools, NetTutor, and more.
Canvas Tier 1 Support Available 24/7
Canvas offers Tier 1 Support for all faculty and students 24/7, 365 days a year. If you have a question about Canvas or need help finding something, please contact Tier 1 Support first as they are able to impersonate accounts and troubleshoot directly, something our admin team is unable to do.

You can access Tier 1 Support by logging in to Canvas and clicking on the Help button located at the bottom of the gray left hand navigation bar. You can search the Canvas Guides , chat online, email, or call. The phone number for student support is: 1 (833) 820-4070

The app is available both for Android and Apple phones, and you'll log into Navigate Student using your UW-Parkside credentials.

You can setup Navigate to send you push notifications for things like advising appointments, updates, and reminders.
