Canvas login will require the user’s full email address beginning Monday, November 11.
On Monday, November 11th, all students and staff will receive an announcement regarding the release of My CTS – a new single sign-on portal. My CTS seeks to tie together many of the systems and resources students and staff use at the seminary into one convenient place.
You may access My CTS at: https://mycts.covenantseminary.edu.
In addition to this release, IT Services will be changing how students and faculty login to Canvas so that it falls in line with the rest of our systems and infrastructure.
Here’s what you need to know:
The current experience:
- Users go to the Canvas website: https://covenantseminary.instructure.com (see picture below) and log in using seminary username (John.Calvin123) and password.
The new experience:
- After the My CTS announcement email on Monday, November 11th, when users go to the Canvas website (https://covenantseminary.instructure.com), they will see a different login screen (see picture below) and will be prompted to login using their seminary email address (John.Calvin123@covenantseminary.edu) and password.
Why are we making this change?
- This change unifies Canvas with the rest of our institutional systems and allows it to be filtered through the Campus single sign-on provider. It also increases our network security by changing the protocols we are utilizing for authentication.
If you encounter students or staff that are experiencing issues or confusion, remind them to use their full email address (including the “@covenantseminary.edu”) to login.
As always, IT Services will be here to respond to confusion and concerns from our users. We may be contacted by sending an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
