Canvas Orientation Tips

Are you a first-time user in the Canvas Learning Management System? Has your instructor requested that you complete the Canvas Orientation?

The Canvas Student Orientation will provide useful information on how to navigate Eastern Florida State College's online learning environment. To complete the Canvas module, login to myEFSC and select the Canvas icon. The orientation module will be available in the course list when you login to Canvas, and will take about two hours to complete.

Students are advised to complete the orientation at least 3-5 days before the term starts. The early start is encouraged so you may work through the training modules to become familiar with Canvas and to allow time to take the assessment. Students must pass the assessment with a score of 70% or higher to unlock access to other courses.

For specific questions or information on the student orientation, you may contact Ms. Mary Garrett at 321-433-7319. You can also contact a Canvas facilitator on your campus:

Dr. Mary RoslonowskiAcademic Appeals: Students with a question or concern about anything to do with a course (issues with instructors, classmates, course content, content delivery or grades) should speak with the course instructor to see if the question can be answered or the issue resolved. If it is not resolved with the instructor, students should speak with the Department Chair. That communication can be in person, by phone or email if necessary. Quite often issues can be resolved at that stage of the process. If the question/issue is still not resolved, students always have the right to file an appeal with their Associate Provost’s Office. If the course appeal involves an eLearning course, click here for more information.
