  • Step 1. Familiarize yourself with the Technology
  • At North Seattle College, we use Canvas to deliver online, hybrid classe and to supplement campus classes. Students are expected to know how to use Canvas.
  • Read more about basic computer specifications for Canvas: Canvas Specifications

  • Step 2. Create your MySeattleCollege account and keep your registered email up to date
  • North has computer labs available for registered students who have created their MySeattleColleges Login account.  If your course has sound files and you use the computers on campus, you will need to supply your own headphones to allow you to listen to these files.  
  • Canvas will have a different login than your MySeattleColleges account. Whatever email you used when registering for classes will be the email used in Canvas to receive instructor information. It is important to keep that email up to date or change it once you are in Canvas. See our Canvas support page
