Why do I get a Google error when trying to access Canvas?

A Google Authentication error happens usually, when a private Gmail account is logged in at the browser level.
In Chrome, check under the logo icon in the top right corner, just to the right of the Customization menu (3 vertical dots).
Either log out of the account you find there, or add your WMU-Cooley account as a second account.
If you add the WMU-Cooley account, you will be prompted after going to Canvas, which account to use.
