3 Steps to Prepare for Online Classes

Make sure that you can access your El Camino College (ECC) email. Important announcements from the campus and instructors are usually sent to your ECC email. For assistance with your ECC email, you may chat with technical support or call Information Technology Services (ITS) Help Desk at (310) 660-6571.

Canvas, the college-supported Learning Management System, used by all instructors for online and hybrid classes. Make sure your Canvas login works, the login is the same as your MyECC login. Once logged in, you may not see your class(es) yet. This is not a problem; most instructors do not publish their classes until the first day of class.
