Check the student handbook for an updated listing of resources, office hours and locations, and other student tools, or refer to the list below.
Most Delgado courses, including online and hybrid, are taught using Canvas, an online course management system. Instructors and students can use Canvas to share course materials, submit assignments, and communicate with each other.
All students, online and on campus, are encourage to take our free Canvas Student Orientation Canvas LMS course to learn how to use Canvas to be successful in all courses.
