Canvas - the new virtual learning environment
From the start of the autumn semester of 2018, all programmes and courses are using the Canvas virtual learning environment. You will receive access to Canvas after you have registered for a course using Canvas. If you are a new Karlstad University student, you need to activate your KauID before you can register for your course.
Canvas is Karlstad University’s new virtual learning environment. Sixteen other Swedish higher education institutions are simultaneously switching to Canvas.
I am a new student. When do I get a Canvas account?
Follow these steps:
- Create your KauID – at the earliest two weeks before the course starts.
- Register for the course to which you have been admitted – at the earliest a week before the course starts.
My Page: www3.kau.se/minsida
- Log into Canvas using your KauID
Click on the link “Student or staff at KAU” on www.kau.se/canvas
NOTE! If you are a student unable to log in, despite registering for a course, it is because the course is not yet published. Please try again later or contact the course administration.
Where is my Canvas course?
Once you have logged into Canvas, you can on the dashboard see the courses you can access. If you have been registered on a course that does not appear, first look in Courses / All courses. Secondarily, please contact the course administrator.
