Canvas learning management system help for students
The Canvas learning management system was purchased by Tech for campus-wide use and is administered by the Academic Center for Technology (ACT). It is used by the NMT Distance Education Program to deliver course content. While ACT uses Canvas to link to live and/or recorded lectures, any additional content on Canvas is provided by the instructor.
Log into Canvas (you can also reach it at learn.nmt.edu)
(If you are enrolled at Tech and do not already have a Canvas password (separate from your email, Banner or library passwords) use your Tech ID (the 9-digit number beginning with 900) as your login and your birthdate (yyyymmdd) as your password.)
