You will be able to login to Canvas about two weeks prior to the start of your class. However, your course becomes available as of 1 AM on the official course start date.

You will need to provide your last name AND either your 7 digit student ID number OR your social security #. Your Bucks username will display on the screen.

Purchasing Your Books and Other Course Materials

Other Information about the Course

Welcome to class -- and thanks for signing up for VAMM100-Digital Imaging. I hope it’s an enjoyable experience. Before getting into the organizational details and topics of the course, you might be wondering why the course is presented online in the first place. One advantage of the online format is the ability to include digital images, instructional videos from Lynda.com and other sources as well as from myself. I will also provide you with some wonderful tutorials in the handout format that you can print and follow along at your own pace. Hopefully they will make the subject more interesting and the material easier to understand. Prior to navigating this course I would spend as much time as possible learning Canvas, our wonderful new learning management system. If you are familiar with Canvas you will find this quite easy to navigate. To learn more about the specific tools available in Canvas, please click on each of the navigation links to learn about each of them. During our first week I will be posting some extremely helpful tutorials on several of the functions that we will be using within Canvas. If you have any questions regarding canvas you can visit the technology center. I can also help during our Orientation the first week of class.
