How to Access Your Canvas Account (written directions)

Getting Started:

  1. Go to or select the Edmonds Bookmarks folder in your bookmark bar and then select Canvas

2. The login screen will be Red with an image of a Panda. Log in with your District Username and Password and then select STAY SIGNED IN. 

3. Once you are logged in, select the course to open it from the Dashboard. 

If you do not see the course on the Dashboard follow these directions "Customize my Course List"  to locate the course and add it to your Dashboard.  

Students:  If you do not see some of your courses, the teacher has not published the course.


Past Course Enrollments are archived when the grading term ends and they will be removed from the main Dashboard. 

You can view all of your Past Enrollments in Canvas, but access to the course content will vary depending on the course settings. If a teacher has enabled the ability to view Course Content after it has concluded, you will have a Read-Only Access.  If the permissions are not enabled, you will only see the title of the course.


Access: (in Edmonds Bookmarks)

Username: student’s username (everything before in their email)

Password: student’s password (same as Chromebook and gmail)
