Student Resource Hub

The Hub will provide resources for students who are learning online at De Anza. It will change frequently as new resources become available. Please bookmark this page and check back often.

Important Note for Zoom Users

Students can use the Zoom app to join class meetings, or join through your web browser. Always update the Zoom app installed on your computer or mobile device, when prompted.

If you are unable to update your Zoom app immediately, join through the web browser and update your Zoom app as soon as possible.

  • New to Canvas?

    Canvas provides an online environment with tools for accessing course content, assignments, discussions and exams, depending on what your instructors choose to use. You will need a modern computer with updated an Web browser (Chrome is highly recommended) and an Internet connection.

    There's also a Canvas student app that allows many but not all Canvas features to be accessed. There are step-by-step Canvas Student Guides that show you how to perform common tasks in Canvas, from changing your profile to submitting an assignment.

  • New to Zoom?

    Zoom is Web conferencing software that allows you to meet as a class or individually with your teacher over the Internet. Meetings are sometimes recorded and available for later viewing.

    Within Canvas: Some instructors will direct you to access Zoom meetings from within your Canvas course. Look in the course navigation menu on the left for Zoom.

    Outside of Canvas: Your teacher may send a link for a Zoom meeting to you through email. When you click the Zoom link you may be prompted to download the Zoom application. Read the Zoom quick-start guide for students (outside of Canvas) for instructions
