Ereserves Transition to Canvas

To provide a more seamless experience for students, course materials previously linked to within Ereserves should be moved to Canvas.

Q: Why transition to Canvas?

A: Canvas provides a more seamless environment for students by using a single place for accessing course materials - students no longer have to learn to navigate the Ereserves structure or worry about special passwords.  Before tools like Canvas became available, Ereserves provided a place for students to access course materials online.  Now that Canvas is used in so many HCC courses, it makes sense to use Canvas to provide a one-stop-shop for a course's content.

Q: Can I still have materials added to Ereserves?

A: Ereserves is no longer accepting any new course materials. Content previously placed on Ereserves is no longer accessible beginning August 7, 2020.

Q: Can I get my old course materials from Ereserves?

A: Yes, library staff can provide links/files as needed to help you get your content into Canvas through September 30, 2020.

Q: Can the Library still help with questions I have about posting copyrighted material?

A: Yes, you can always ask us copyright questions - contact Nana Owusu-Nkwantabisa.

Q: Where can I get help using Canvas?

A: Canvas help is available from Elearning via the myHCC portal - go to Faculty Resources, then Teaching & Learning Services, then eLearning.
