Order your summer Canvas accounts now

March 29, 2019

With just a few weeks left in the semester, it’s a good time to start thinking ahead and order your Summer and Fall Canvas accounts. Remember that a new Canvas account must be ordered for each semester you teach. Once you have a new account, you can copy any existing Canvas account into it if you are a Co-Teacher or Teacher in the course you are copying. New Canvas accounts are ordered by going to Canvas > Help > Global Course Administration > if prompted, click ‘Authorize’ on the ISU Admin Tool screen > click ‘Request a New Course Shell’ > fill out the form. Be sure to include the semester and year in the Course Name field, e.g. ‘HDFS 101, Section 1 (Fall 2019.)’ To copy an old course into your new account, go into the new account > Settings > Import Course Content > set Content Type = ‘Copy a Canvas Course’, select course to copy, click the ‘All Content’ radio button, click the ‘Import’ button.
