Account Information

WVDE has moved to a single sign-on process for many of our online initiatives. All West Virginia public school educators, current and past, are to use their login and password associated with their k12.wv.us email account. When in doubt, educators are to contact their county technology coordinator for this information.

If you have never been a West Virginia public school employee, please visit our Certification Portal (https://wveis.k12.wv.us/certportal/) and complete the information requested. The login and password you are assigned will be your WVLearns Canvas credentials.

A $200.00 registration fee per course is required for all non-West Virginia residents who are not employed by a WV school system. Course registration fees must be received before course enrollment is initiated.
