If your school uses Courseware and Canvas or Blackboard, your instructor can set it up so that your Courseware course and your Canvas or Blackboard course are linked. As a student, you can access your Courseware course through either LMS with the use of single sign-on.
Link your accounts
Follow these three steps to link your Courseware account with Canvas or Blackboard.
- First, log into your Canvas or Blackboard account, and then navigate to your course that is using Courseware single sign-on.
- In the menu on the left, select Visible Body Courseware. This will launch Courseware inside of your LMS.
NOTE: An error may occur if your instructor has:
- Not finished linking the Courseware and Canvas or Blackboard courses, or
- Used an incorrect Secret or Key to set up the single sign-on. Please contact your instructor if you see an error when you select Courseware from the left-hand menu.
- In the Courseware window, you can either:
- Select "Sign up!" and create an account. If your school currently has a group subscription, you won't be prompted to purchase or use a code and you will be brought right to your course. If you've been instructed to purchase a subscription, you can read this article to learn about how to buy.
- Or select "Sign in!" to log in with your existing account credentials, or sign in with Google by entering your Google account information. This will link your Courseware and Canvas accounts so that you never have to log into Courseware within Canvas again and will automatically enroll you in the correct Courseware course.

After logging in to Courseware, you won't be asked to do so again. Just log into Canvas or Blackboard! Selecting the Courseware launcher on the left menu will bring you right to your course page.
If you want to access Courseware outside of your LMS, you can do that too! Just use the Courseware credentials that you created and log in at https://courseware.visiblebody.com/.
