Before You Start

This guide is a compilation of resources to assist faculty by introducing you to the academic resources available to faculty at BC.

Getting Started in Canvas

There are a few key steps to complete in order to ensure that preparing for and teaching your course go smoothly.  These are listed below. 

  1. Set up your BC username and primary password for Agora Portal and Canvas access, and secondary password for BC email access. These are required for accessing Agora Portal where you can check your course schedule and room location as well as for accessing Canvas. 
  2. If you are teaching a course with multiple sections, please contact your course coordinator to check whether Canvas materials are provided. 
  3. Check out the Center for Teaching Excellence Course Launch Checklist for information on uploading your syllabus, checking course settings on Canvas, and publishing your course.
