Required Online Training

All new and non-matriculated students are registered into a “JCPH Student Training” course in Canvas upon admission and/or registering for a course with us for the first time. This course contains required training components: “Foundations” and “Orientation to Online Courses.” In addition, fully online students are provided access to program-specific guidance in an "Online Programs Orientation" module that corresponds to their online program.

We recommend that you confirm your access to the Canvas site as soon as possible.  Contact our Educational Technology support if you encounter problems.

Once logged into your Canvas homepage, click the textbook icon on the left to see your available courses.  Then, select the “JCPH Student Training” course.  Click on “Modules” in the course navigation to display its training content.

These required online trainings are available on demand, 24/7: 

  • Foundations: In this training you’ll set up your preferences in Canvas, the online course management system through which our online courses are delivered, and review essentials about academic writing, among other topics.  The Foundations training takes about 1 hour to complete.
  • Orientation to Online Courses: In this Orientation you’ll view a tour of a typical online course, participate in online discussions, and learn about the policies and procedures common to our online courses. Since courses in these programs share a common structure, the familiarity you acquire here with course layout and tools will apply with each online course you take. The Orientation takes about 2 hours to complete.
  • Online Programs Orientation: For students in fully online programs, these modules become available upon completion of the Orientation to Online Courses. You are expected to complete your online program-specific module only.
