My students forgot their Canvas password.  How can he/she get a new one?

If a student has forgotten their Canvas password, they can click the "Forgot Password?" link at the bottom of the login box.  An email will be sent to the email account that is connected to their Canvas account (MSIS#@jpsms.org). Inside of this email will be a link that will allow them to reset their password. They will need to go to their email account and click on the link, enter a new password, click "Update Password" button.  Encourage them to use something that is easy to remember.  There is no way to see what they have set as their password.  So, if they forget again they will have to repeat these steps in order to gain access their account.

How does a student get into the @jpsms.org email account?

Go to www.google.com  and click the gmail link.

User Name: MSIS#@jpsms.org
