What is Canvas?
Canvas is Lindbergh's learning management system, which supports teaching and learning by connecting all of our digital tools in one place. This connection empowers teachers to transform the learning experience for students by making it more personalized, engaging and collaborative.
Students can check their course calendars, access materials and submit assignments. In addition, parents and guardians can access Canvas to view course calendars, grades and assignments.
Creating a Parent Account
Please be aware that being a parent observer in Canvas is similar to looking out the window of a plane. You can see the ground but you can't make out all of the fine details. There may be times when you click a Canvas notification on your phone and it will result in a 503 error. This happens because you do not have a Lindbergh email account, and both Canvas and Google limit what you can see. If you need to see everything, we recommend logging in to Canvas using your student's account.
To get started, you will need:
- A computer or mobile device
- Your student logged in to their Canvas account on a different device
- Your student will generate a code that will grant you access to their courses
- Click on the icon below that best fits your technology setup
- Watch the accompanying tutorial video
Announcements allow teachers to communicate with students about course activities and post interesting course-related topics. Announcements are designed to allow teachers to share information with all members of a course or all members of sections within a course. Students may be able to reply to announcements, but replies are not considered to be a conversation and do not appear in the Conversations Inbox.
