7. Make your Canvas Site Visible to Students

If you need some tech support while you work with Canvas, refer to the 24/7 phone and chat support available to you (and your students) via the Help tab in Canvas (you have to be logged in). You can also email Canvas for Help at firstname.lastname@example.org
