Academic courses (for 1 or more credits) are created systematically 4-6 months before each semester.
Non-graded courses (labs and recitations) are created by request.
The course grading scheme is used to convert the numeric % value of the Total score into a letter grade. There is a default grading scheme that is set in all Canvas courses, but instructors are able to change the grading scheme.
Cross-listing allows Instructors to add section enrollments from individual sections into a single Canvas course, which allows Instructors to manage all course materials in one location. It is recommended to cross-list sections before content is added to a course.
Instructors and Students are added systematically from ARIESweb. All teaching assignments in ARIESweb are added into Canvas in the Teacher.
Teachers are able to manually enroll Assistant Teachers, TA’s, Designers, etc.
Canvas courses open to students on the Friday before the semester begins. To allow students to access a Canvas course, the start date must have passed and the course must be published.
