CE Health Sciences Online Courses

Several courses throughout Continuing Education are offered online using CANVAS.  

Advantages to Online Learning

  • You set your schedule: while there are assignments and due dates, most have a window of several days for completion
  • Learn the way you need to: online classes provide multiple opportunities for exposure to the information in a variety of methods, not just lecture time in a classroom
  • Save on fuel: online classes eliminate the need to drive to campus
  • Personalized interaction with the instructor: all instructors for online courses are Collin College instructors, and you will be able to interact with them directly as they guide you through the material in the same way they would for an on-campus course

What do I do?

After you have registered for an online course, please visit the course webpage to find your textbook information.  Most classes require a textbook and most also require an access code. Try to purchase both prior to the first day of class.  Books and access codes can be purchased at the Plano Campus Bookstore, from an online vendor like Amazon, or directly from the publisher.  
On the first day of class (sometimes in the evening), you will receive an email from your instructor.  That message will go to your Collin email account as well as the personal email address you provided to the college when you registered.  The message will contain login information, book information, and a syllabus.
To log in to CANVAS:
  1. Login to CougarWeb. (If you have never logged on to CougarWeb before, your username will be the beginning part of your email account, usually the first letter of your first name, followed by your last name, and then possibly a number. Your password will be the last 6 digits of your CWID. If you do not know your CWID or user name, please email CEHelp@collin.edu from the email account you used when you registered, and provide your date of birth. They can send you the CWID and user name.) 
  2. Click on My Courses, then find the CANVAS icon
