Student Guide to Canvas 

Canvas is ICC’s learning management system. Instructors will post course information, like the syllabus, and course content on Canvas and may use Canvas as part of how they communicate with you. You have a Canvas account to log in to view course content and complete actions like submitting assignments and posting on discussion boards.
