Watch the list of videos below to learn how to use Canvas. You will take your courses in Canvas (our learning management system), but you register for them, pay bills and get transcripts in Populi (our student information system). If possible, we recommend that you watch the videos in one window while clicking through Canvas as you follow along with the videos.
