Technology and Carmen Resources

We know that it can be a challenge to navigate campus technology and online learning. Here are some resources to support you!

Help with Carmen

Carmen ( is Ohio State’s learning management system. While we call this system Carmen, technically the software that powers it is called Canvas, so you might hear either term used.

Almost every course at Ohio State uses Carmen in some way. A class that is completely online will use Carmen for the entire course, but even an in-person class may have some elements that are posted on Carmen (syllabus, readings, etc.).
