WCL courses use Canvas or myWCL to host online content — e.g. your course syllabus, readings, and any other "asynchronous" material your professor may assign. Please check your course syllabus and/or welcome email from your professor to confirm which platform will be used.
You can log into Canvas at http://canvas.american.edu/ using your myAU credentials or via the "Online Course Login" link on this page.
You can log into MyWCL at https://my.wcl.american.edu/ using your myAU credentials.
Synchronous, or live, sessions (if any) will be on Zoom. Zoom links will be e-mailed to students and/or posted in the online platform specific to your course.
Students do not need Zoom accounts to participate in classes; however, you can create an account for free by signing in at https://american.zoom.us/ using email@example.com as your email and your MyAU password.
If you need Canvas specific help, there are a few options:
