Flexible Learning with Online & Hybrid Courses
Online Courses are completed fully online — meaning there are no on-campus meetings. Online Courses use the Canvas Learning Management System to deliver content and to assess your learning.
Hybrid Courses are partially online — meaning there are some on-campus meetings. Hybrid Courses use the CANVAS Learning Management System, to deliver content and to assess your learning.
Finding and Registering for Online Courses
You register for FRC online courses the same way you register for any other course at FRC. There is no difference in cost, requirements that courses satisfy, nor can you expect online courses to be easier. In fact they often require more self-discipline and time. The main advantage is the flexibility of time you have to complete your assignments. However, online course assignments do have deadlines the same as on campus courses. You may find that online courses encourage more interaction with other students and your instructor than some on campus courses, and that online courses use more ways to present the material.
Canvas: The FRC Online Course Environment
All online courses are delivered using the Canvas learning management system. If you're enrolled in a hybrid course, the online portion is also accessed on Canvas. In fact, all FRC courses have a Canvas course area that instructors and students might access! Some courses include material such as videos, links to external websites, or learning materials provided by text book publishers that students will be instructed to access through Canvas.
How do I get into Canvas?
It all begins with an an FRC email account. When you enroll at FRC you receive an frc.edu email. Your Canvas login is the same username and password you use for your FRC email and for campus computers. You can login to Canvas
The Help link in your Canvas course area is NOT for help with FRC email accounts or registration issues.The Canvas Help link is only for technical questions around your Canvas area.
Ready to Login to Canvas?
You can access Canvas through the My FRC link on the homepage, or go directly to the FRC Canvas Website.
Use your FRC email username and password to login. You will automatically be taken to your Canvas dashboard where you should see all your courses. Hint: usernames are the first part of your FRC email address (before the @). Student passwords are the first initial+last 4 digits of the student ID+last initial, small letters.
