Request a Canvas Shell

Shells will be automatically created based on the CRNs in the schedule. That means all courses will get a Canvas shell.

If you want a development shell (a shell not associated with a CRN) then you can call the 24/7 Canvas Faculty Support to request: 1-844-612-7422

Mesa Training Opportunities

The Mesa Canvas Learning Center (MCLC) is our hub for Canvas training at Mesa. This training option is open to all Mesa employees. It is an open/public site. To participate in discussions you'll need to be enrolled. 

The MCLC includes handouts, videos, and discussions where you can post questions and get answers from colleagues. It is different from District's Canvas Transition Course. The MCLC focuses on how-to in Canvas and allows you to select only the topics that you need. 

You'll find an orange button on the home page of the Mesa Canvas Learning Center with the form for enrolling.
