Training & Help

Students at Skagit Valley Colleges (SVC) elect to take online (eLearning) courses because of a variety of reasons including flexibility in scheduling, learning preferences, and cost-effectiveness. The eLearning courses at SVC are academically rigorous and equivalent to traditional face-to-face courses. They are the same in terms of credits, learning objectives, competencies, content, and transferability. Also, the same policies concerning admission requirements are the same.

New to online learning? Take the Introduction to Online Learning Canvas course:

  • Students can expect to gain information regarding: 1) Hands-on experience with basic functions within Canvas (post to a discussion, submit an assignment, take a self-evaluation survey). 2) Differences between course formats (face-to-face, hybrid, online). 3) What is necessary to be successful in an online class 4) Support resources available at SVC.
  • You will be prompted to login to Canvas using your MySVC email address and password.
  • If you missed in-person workshops, you can still enroll in the course and complete Introduction to Online Learning at your own pace.
  • Take a quick multiple-choice quiz “Is Online Learning for Me?” to help you assess if you are ready to take online classes.
  • Refer to the Technical Requirements page to verify that your computer is capable of working with the Canvas environment. Keep in mind that distance courses require you to have reliable access to a computer with an Internet connection.
