For those of you who are new to Canvas, it is a learning management system (LMS) by Instructure that has been adopted by all of the schools of Harvard University. Canvas provides tools for teaching staff to develop and administer course websites. In this guide, we will show you step-by-step how to login into your Canvas account.
How to Login Canvas Account?
Step 1: Go to canvas.harvard.edu in your web browser
The first thing you need to do is go to the Canvas login page in your web browser. You can do this by typing in “canvas.harvard.edu” into the address bar and hitting Enter on your keyboard.
Step 2: Enter your HarvardKey credentials
Once you’re on the Canvas login page, you will see a space for you to enter your HarvardKey credentials. Your HarvardKey is the username and password that you use to login to other Harvard University services, such as my.harvard or Crimson Carta.
If you have never logged in with your HarvardKey before, or if you have forgotten your password, please follow the instructions on the “Forgot Password?” link on the Canvas login page. HarvardKey passwords must be at least 8 characters long and have at least 3 of the following 4 character types: uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols ([email protected]
Once you have entered your HarvardKey credentials, simply click on the “Login” button and you will be taken to your dashboard.
