UCLA Extension utilizes an online learning management system called Canvas. Within Canvas you can interact with your instructor and peers, find course materials, activities, assignments, quizzes, and more. Some courses also use Zoom to conduct scheduled, live-online class sessions.
If the course(s) you enrolled in uses Canvas, course content will be made accessible online through the Canvas platform beginning 2 days before the course start date (after 1:00 AM PT) until 30 days after the course end date.
You should receive an email when you may access Canvas, typically within 3 hours of completing registration. You can then follow the steps below to log in or request a password.
Zoom Web Conference Tool
If your course has scheduled live online meetings, you will need to access Zoom.
Zoom is a web conferencing tool that allows you to interact with your instructor and peers online, in real time. You’ll find this tool within your Canvas course Zoom area.
