How Do I Log in to Canvas?

Follow these steps to access Canvas. The user ID and password information is the same whether you are using Canvas via a web browser or using it via one of the Canvas apps.

    1. Go to https://moody.instructure.com. This will take you to a Microsoft page (which is the system Moody uses to give permission to enter the site). Type in your Moody email address.
    2. Next, you will be directed to a Moody login page; you are on the correct page if you see a picture of the Moody clocktower.
    3. Use the following format to log in:
      Username = yourusername@moody.edu
      For many users, their Moody username (used to log into myMoody or Blackboard) is first initial, last name; someone with an even more common name might have first initial, last name, plus a number as a username (e.g., jsmith or hjones3). So, for Canvas, jsmith would be jsmith@moody.edu and hjones3 would be hjones3@moody.edu. Be sure you are using this shorter version of your email address and not your longer one (e.g., james.smith@moody.edu)
      Password = your regular Moody password

Now you should be on the Canvas homepage. Your courses will be represented by "tiles."
