Use your browser (preferably Google Chrome) to navigate to Canvas at https://canvas.cornell.edu
- Click Cornell NetID.
On the CUWebLogin page, enter your NetID and password.
Although it looks like a Google page, you need to use your NetID password.
If you use LastPass, it may offer to update your password vault with what you just typed.
DON'T DO IT or it will replace your Google account password with the password for your NetID and that will make you sad.
- Then follow the normal procedure you use for Cornell's Two-Step Login.
On your Canvas Dashboard, click the tile for the desired course.
On the course details page, in the navigation column, click Apps on Demand.
You'll then see the landing page for your course or project.
Click the icon for the app you want to use. Your session will be prepared. This usually takes about two minutes.
When asked, sign in to the application with your Cornell NetID and password. The application you chose will finish loading.
Please note that if you use Cornell's LastPass password manager, you'll probably find that your password is already filled in, but it will be the wrong password, because LastPass will detect that you are on an Amazon site. You will need to enter your correct NetID password. LastPass will then offer to update this password, but you should say no, because it would overwrite your current Amazon password, and that would make you sad.
