Course Website and Canvas
Registered students in the online Penn State courses that use this text need to navigate between several environments in the World Wide Web. These include:
- Course Website: The course website consists of lessons, each including pages of text, graphics, and activities. Activities prompt readers to explore selected websites, to download data and/or software, or other adventures. Registered students may also be prompted to navigate to Canvas to take practice quizzes and graded quizzes.
- Canvas: Penn State's enterprise course management system. In Canvas, registered students consult course calendars, communicate with instructors and fellow students, submit project reports, receive individual project critiques from instructors, take online quizzes and a final exam, and check assignment scores and course grades.
Note that a link to Canvas appears in the main menu above. In Canvas, registered students will find links back to this course website under the Modules tab.
