How to use Canvas

We are using the Education platform Canvas.
Please log your student into their new FLY Classroom using the instructions below.

Step 1 - Logging into Canvas

  1. Check your student’s email for the Canvas invitation. (Use the student email you provided at time of registration)
    • Please check your spam folder if you do not see the invitation.
  2. Click on the blue “Get Started” button.
  3. You will be taken to the Canvas “Welcome Aboard!” page.
  4. If you already have a Canvas account, please click on the “I have a Canvas account” button and login from there.
  5. If you have never used Canvas before, select the “Create my account” button and follow the prompts. Canvas will ask you to create a password.
  6. Please save or write down your new password somewhere. If you cannot remember your password, you can change it anytime by clicking on the “Forgot password” link on the Login page.

If you are using a tablet or smart phone, you can use the same instructions for logging in, but it is highly recommended that you add the Canvas Student app to your device first.

Step 2 - Accessing Microsoft Teams - for live classes

FLY uses Microsoft Teams for live classes.
Please add the Teams app to your device using the instructions below.

  1. Microsoft Teams is what FLY uses for our Live classes. Teams works best if you can download the app. The app is available for computers, tablets and phones. Once you have this installed on your device, Teams should automatically open from the Live Class link.
  2. Now log into your Canvas account and go to your FLY classroom homepage.
  3. From the homepage you will see three clouds. Each cloud is linked to the Lessons, Live Class, or Resources pages.
  4. Click on the “Live Class” cloud and Microsoft Teams will open for you. You will be asked if you want to download the app, continue on your browser or open your Teams app.  Select Open your Teams app.
  5. Click Join and wait for the Teacher to admit you into the class. To Leave, click on the red “Leave” button.

Step 3 - Turning in Assignments

Instructions on how to turn in an assignment in Canvas are in the “Resources” section of your FLY classroom. Click on the Resources cloud to see the instructions.

  1. Sign into Canvas and enter your FLY classroom.
  2. Go to the Lesson you want to work on. There are 3 ways you can do this. From the Home Page you can:
  3. Click on the Lesson you want, then click on the Activity.
  4. Or you can go directly to the assignment by clicking on the Activity link under the “To Do” list.
  5. From the Activity page, click on the blue “Start Assignment” button in the upper right-hand corner.
  6. To complete your Activity online or print out your worksheet, click on the “Student Annotation” tab.

How the Classroom works

We have structured our class so your student will have one or two live Teams classes a week (depending on the class).

We post a new lesson/s every week that will always include an instructional video and an activity worksheet.

Your student’s teacher will be monitoring the class, answering questions, encouraging participation and just being available for the class outside of the live class time.
