Technology Requirements

Open Tent Academy uses Instructure Canvas as our learning management system, and Zoom for our virtual classroom environment. Both applications run on both Windows and MacOS, and also are available as mobile apps for both iOS and Android.


Zoom system requirements can be found here.
Canvas system requirements can be found here.

  • For Canvas, we recommend that you use either Chrome, Firefox, or Safari as your browser.
  • For Zoom, please make sure to update your app to the latest version whenever possible.

To access OTA’s Canvas, you simply go to: https://opentent.instructure.com – or you can just click on the “My Student Login – Canvas” button on the top right of the menu bar above this page. Once you have signed up for a course or workshop, you will receive (prior to the first day of class) information on how to login to the system.

Password resets for Canvas: Please email us ASAP if you need your Canvas password reset. Do not use the internal password reset option within Canvas, as we will not receive your request.
