Remote learning can sometimes lead to confusion or frustration. Here are some resources to guide you through remote learning and make this transition smoother:
The University of Michigan provides access to many software titles. Below are resources available to assist you with installing the program on your personal computer or accessing software remotely.
Access Software Remotely:
In Canvas, you have access to the course syllabus, assignments, files, discussions, and more depending on your course and instructor. All U-M students can log in to Canvas at canvas.umich.edu using your U-M uniqname and password.
