Connecting to Canvas

One of the things you can do with your ONID account is connect to Canvas, which is used for most (but not all) classes offered at OSU.

Canvas is OSU's Learning Management System (LMS). It can be a virtual classroom, or it can augment the in-person classroom experience. Canvas allows instructors to administer tests and quizzes, post grades and lecture notes, and host discussion boards. Through Canvas, students are able to contact their instructors and classmates, keep a calendar, and maintain an address book.

You will login to Canvas at with your ONID username and password. Remember that a username is not the same thing as an email address. So if your ONID email address is, then your ONID username is just doej.

If you have questions about using Canvas, or specific problems, please see our Canvas helpdoc.
