Canvas and Zoom Help
In order to support you with your learning, the WEA uses Canvas, an online platform that provides you with information, course materials and support, as well as a location for you to submit your work

Filled with useful discussions, quizzes and more, Canvas helps you to learn via mobile, tablet or computer, with a range of different options available to tailor Canvas to your accessibility level

Please note that face to face courses also use Canvas, so you will receive a link to sign up with Canvas when registering for a course.

In some cases, your course may also be taught using Zoom, a programme that allows you to connect with your class and tutor remotely, via your phone, tablet or computer

You can find out more about Canvas and Zoom by using the button below.

We have also created a wide range of support tools to help you with Canvas and Zoom: you can find useful links, image-based guides and more.
