Resources for Students
The following are resources for students at YCCD colleges as we transition to 100% remote instruction in response to the coronavirus.
Many in-person classes are moving to Canvas, the online learning management system used by colleges of the District.
If you are new to Canvas, then you can use the following resources to learn more about how to use the system: Canvas Student Tour
- You can call Canvas Support toll-free, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The link with the Canvas contact number can be found once you are logged into Canvas by clicking the “Help” button.
YCCD Helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 530-741-6981.
MICROSOFT OFFICE 365
If you are enrolled in the current semester, then you are eligible to use Microsoft Office 365, which includes Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Access to Microsoft Office 365 can be gained through the Campus Sign-On Portal using your student ID and Password.
Some instructors will use Zoom to deliver remote instruction. If an instructor uses zoom they will contact students with a meeting notification which will include a link to the meeting.
