Setting up a Canvas Observer (Parent) Account

Step 1

Student generates pairing code

  1. Student must log in to their Canvas account at myncca.instructure.com using their School issued Google account credentials

    1. Students can access their Google accounts by following these steps: 

    2. Go to mail.google.com

    3. Enter their school issued Google Email address
      The format for the email address is studentfirstname.studentlastname@students.myncca.com. 
      For example, a student with the name Ariel Anderson would have the email address ariel.anderson@students.myncca.com.
      There are no hyphens, spaces, accents, or special punctuation in students emails. If a student has the same name as another student who is currently enrolled, the year of birth is added to the end of the last name. 

    4. Password for first time logins is a students date of birth in the format m/d/yyyy with no leading zeroes on the month or day and a four digit year.
      For example, a student with a birthday of April 9, 2013 would have a first time password of 4/9/2013.

    5. Students will be asked to change their password the first time they log in. Be sure to utilize a password that they will remember but that is not easy to guess! 

  2. Once logged in, they will click on "Account" in the menu on the far left, and then "Settings". 










     

  3. Once on the "Settings" page, students can click on the "Pair with Observer" button on the far right of the screen. 












     

  4. The code that is generated will then need to be given to the parent/guardian or learning coach that is wishing to be paired with the student and be entered into the Parent Account. 
    **Students will need to generate a pairing code for each observer account that is being paired.
