What if I can't remember my email or password? Student's emails follow the following format: email@example.com. We start out giving the same generic password (contact your first period teacher or a friend if you need it again) and then you will be prompted to change it. If you need it reset, contact your first period teacher.
How do I log into Zoom? Creating a Zoom account…
Type in “zoom.us” on your browser.
Click the orange button in the top right corner that says “Sign-up, It’s Free”
Parents/guardians, put in your birthday, a working email address (you can also use the student’s ECS email if you wish).
After this, an activation email will be sent to the email you provided. Go to that email, and click the button that says “Activate Account.”
Once it takes you back to Zoom, finish setting up your account by entering the information required.
How do I log into Canvas? Canvas (Online Classrooms)
Go to your ECS gmail and log-in (firstname.lastname@example.org)
In your email, open one of your emailed course invitations and click “Get Started”
Once on Canvas, you will be asked to create a password and confirm your time zone. I would use the same password as your email.
After registering, click “Accept Invitation” and you’ll be in!
For your other classes, click the invitations and “Get Started,” then accept the invitation for each.
Make sure you are registered in ALL of the classes listed on your schedule by Sept. 8th.

My sound or video isn't working on Zoom? Go to settings in zoom and make sure you have clicked "use computer audio" and then check that your volume is up. If this happens during a zoom, it will be recorded and posted later in case you miss anything. For video- make sure Zoom has access to your computer or phone camera in settings.
