OPT-IN for all Web Enhanced classes using Canvas

The Web-Enhanced class shell "opt-in" will enable Distance Education to create Canvas class shells for your Web-Enhanced
classes and populate them with students.
This process is required ONLY for Web-Enhanced instructors with Canvas training that plan to use Canvas.
For Web-Enhanced courses, Canvas is optional, strictly considered supplemental, and should not replace instruction time
outside of the classroom.
If you have not had Canvas training and would like to use Canvas, visit the Faculty Training Page for more information.

Please note that online and hybrid courses, do NOT require the opt-in and are set up by default once the the instructional method is coded by the IDS.

IMPORTANT!!
You will NOT be able to access your Canvas class until 2 to 4 hours AFTER the opt-in is submitted!
For a current term, students may need to wait up to 4 hours AFTER the opt-in is submitted to access your class in Canvas!

  1. Go to WebAdvisor faculty page
