If you are taking online classes in the spring 2017 semester, one or more of your classes may use Canvas, rather than Etudes, as the Learning Management System (LMS). The classes that use Canvas will be designated by a small Canvas logo next to the course listing on the Online Courses page. There are some links on the left side of this page to get you started. A Canvas FAQ page answers some basic questions. If you have a Canvas course, your login information can be found on the course home page for your course. After the Spring 2017 semester, all online classes at COS will be taught using Canvas. If you are having trouble logging in, contact the Student Help Desk during business hours at (530) 938-5523 or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistace.
Go to the Etudes Gateway, https://myetudes.org/, and log in using your user ID and password per the instructions below. Be sure you are familiar with the System Requirements for your computer before you begin your class.
See the current list of Online Courses and click on the link for your class for more information. Check the start date for your class to be sure you are not trying to log in before your course begins. Online course rosters will be loaded into Etudes on December 15, 2016 for the Spring semester 2017. If you have taken Etudes classes before, you will be able to log into Etudes, but you will not see your course tabs until the rosters have been loaded. If you are brand new to Etudes you will not be able to log into Etudes until your account is created on the roster date, or 24 hours after you have registered (if you register after the roster start date).
Your Etudes User ID will be:

You can also find your Etudes login ID in Navigator. Log in to Navigator. On the Home tab, it is the first link in the Etudes channel (box with Etudes logo and information). Please note that, if you are a new Etudes student, you cannot log in to Etudes until up to 24 hours after you are registered for a class that uses Etudes. For more information see the Login Problems section of the page.
If you are having trouble logging into Navigator, please see the Getting Started with Navigator page.
Etudes also provides their own Student Help page. You will need to go here, for example, if you need to have your Etudes password reset. If your course material is viewing or behaving strangely, be sure you have checked the System Requirements for Etudes to be sure you are using a compatible browser.
Once you have logged into Etudes, you will see the Etudes Dashboard similar to this:
To change your password from here, go to Account and click Edit under "Login." If you change your password, make sure you write it down or use one you won't forget.If you are seeing an error message when you try to log in, you are entering a user id or password Etudes does not recognize.
