Getting technical support in using Canvas:

To get help with Canvas, click on “help” on the Canvas menu, you will then see a list of options for you to get help.  When you contact anyone for help, unless you are on the phone, always include URL of the page you have a problem with.  For instance:

If you are on the phone, let the person on the phone know the identifying number of the course, in the example above, the identifying number would be: “1825476”. You can find it by going to “modules” of your course and then see the number in the address bar.

If you experience issues with a particular feature or function, you can also check Canvas Status for updates.

Canvas help is best for answering specific product-related questions (“How do I upload an assignment?” “Speedgrader keeps logging me out.  What can I do?”).  For instructional design questions (“Should I use quiz or assignment for this activity?””I am suspecting a student cheating in this exam, can I find out?””Does Canvas have a way for me to …”),  contact Berlin Fang or Amy Boone.
