For best performance, you should access Canvas with a computer that supports the most recent browser versions. It is recommended to use a computer five years old or newer with at least 1GB of RAM.
Students can check their emails and their schedules in LoLA to ensure the course was not cancelled.
Students should also check to make sure their course(s) are not mini B course(s). When does your course(s) start? Does your course(s) start in August or October/January or March?
If your class starts in October or March, you are enrolled in a mini B course(s). This could be why your course(s) are not viewable on your Canvas dashboard.
Your Canvas password cannot be reset or changed by Fletcher's Canvas Administrator or the IT department. The student has to reset their Canvas password themselves. Students can do this by going to LoLA and resetting their LoLA password.
The video below explains how to reset your LoLA password. Please make sure to follow the steps shown in the video. View video transcription

Fletcher's courses require the use of LockDown Browser and a webcam for online exams. The webcam can be built into your computer or can be the type that plugs in with a USB cable. Watch this short video to get a basic understanding of LockDown Browser and the webcam feature.
A minimum 4gb of available RAM is necessary when using LockDown Browser to take an exam that also uses a webcam.
LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor may continue to run in older operating systems that have reached “end-of-life” but students may encounter unexpected results.
Many online assessments require observation by the instructor or an outside service. Observed exams are referred to as proctored exams.
