    • Section 2: The Ways Classes May Continue

      Many faculty have chosen to continue your class instruction through Canvas, but there are additional methods that they can use. Your class may be continued using any combination of the following:

      1. Canvas (Recommended)

      2. WebEx

      3. HCCC Email

      Canvas

      1. All course sections have a shell on Canvas that instructors can fill with course information, instructional materials, and assignments.

      2. Each course’s instructor and enrolled students have access to a course’s Canvas shell.

      3. Click on the link in the portal to enroll in the free course ‘Classroom Students Guide to Canvas Online (Orientation)’.

      4. Resource Page on the HCCC Website and also can be found in every CANVAS course. This shows you how to get support.

      5. 24/7/365 support from Canvas through chat, email, and call-in (833-225-1548).

      WebEx

      At this time WebEx cannot be used inside Canvas. However, you can send the link to your room through an email or announcement in your Canvas course.

      WebEx is HCCC’s videoconferencing tool and is another option for maintaining instructional continuity. Instructors will set up their sessions. WebEx does require license holders to download software. If instructors choose to use this they will send you information and a link to join the video conference.
