Important Notice!

Canvas is the University of Wolverhampton’s new Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) which is replacing WOLF/WLVglobal for learning and teaching from the academic year 2017/18.

..but what does that mean?

Using WOLF/WLVglobal

Using Canvas

Modules starting before 1 August 2017

If your module starts before the 1 August 2017, you will be using WOLF/WLVglobal and will finish that module in WOLF/WLVglobal.

Once you have finished your module in WOLF/WLVglobal and completed your enrolment for the next academic year (if you are returning to the University), you will be using Canvas.

Modules starting on or after 1 August 2017

If your module starts on or after the 1 August 2017, you will be using Canvas.

You will not be able to access Canvas or your modules in Canvas until you have completed your enrolment and module registration in e:Vision for the academic year 2017/18.

You will still be able to access your previous modules, assessment submissions and feedback in WOLF/WLVglobal, but you won’t be able to change anything (read-only). These will not be copied over to Canvas, therefore, we strongly advise that you download any assessment submissions, feedback or documents you want from WOLF/WLVglobal.

Canvas will be used to support modules, courses and co-curricular activity which relates directly to students’ academic learning. Please refer to the ‘Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Operational Policy’, which can be found at www.wlv.ac.uk/polsregs, for more information about the use of Canvas.

If you use WOLF/WLVglobal for purposes which are not defined as learning and teaching, e.g. document management, meeting management etc., please continue to use WOLF/WLVglobal until an alternative solution has been identified.

For more information about the transition from WOLF/WLVglobal to Canvas, please visit www.wlv.ac.uk/canvas.

Why am I seeing this page?

Your web browser was unable to automatically log you in, and was unable to log you in with the credentials you provided to it in the Browser Authentication popup, or you closed the Browser Authentication popup by selecting "Cancel" or pressing the "ESC" (Escape) key.

If you are on campus, and using Internet Explorer, something has prevented Internet Explorer from automatically logging you in. This could be because you have just used the "Log Out" button, you are not logged into the domain on the computer you are using, or you are not using a University computer.

Additionally, Internet Explorer could not use the credentials you supplied via the Browser Authentication popup. The most common cause is that Internet Explorer requires you to provide the domain with your user id (e.g., "UNV\in9999", instead of just "in9999").

How can I prevent this page appearing again?

  • Use the Browser Authentication popup where possible. With this, the browser will automatically resubmit your login when WOLF asks for it. When using Internet Explorer, remember to prefix "UNV\" to your user id.
