OPD distance access instructions

After you enrol for OPD distance, I will set you up in my online learning system, Canvas by Instructure. 

1. If you've never used my Canvas system before (i.e. you haven't done distance OPD with Life Skills Training in previous years), you will receive an email from Instructive Canvas titled Finish Registration: Canvas. Click on the link that says "Click here to finish the registration process".

2. A new browser window will open up, asking you to set a password, confirm your time zone, and agree to the Acceptable Use Policy. Your login will be the email you provided when you registered for OPD; enter a password of your choosing, change the time zone if necessary, check the box that you agree to the Acceptable Use Policy, and click Register.

3. Your Canvas Dashboard will open up. If you've been super quick and gotten there before I've added you to the courses, it will tell you there are no courses available; don't worry, they'll be coming soon! You can click on the Notification Preferences button to set your preferences if you like; this is not compulsory.

4. If you're opening up Canvas for the first time after I've sent you the course invitation emails, your dashboard will look like this. Click the Accept button for each course, click on the course tile on your dashboard, and click on the Workbook & Quiz link to get started! You should download the PDF booklet and review the content before attempting to respond to the quiz questions.

5. Alternatively, you'll receive two Course Invitation emails from Instructure Canvas, one for each OPD topic you've chosen, letting you know you've been invited to participate in a course. Click on the Get Started button.
