@Faculty Quick Start: Canvas Basics


Missing courses

canvas logoUntil you've been added to canvas as a course instructor by the Student Information System, you will not see your course in Canvas. SIS imports to Canvas are updated continually Monday-Friday. 

To see all of your courses, click the Courses icon in the left-hand navigation, then click the text link “All Courses”. From the All Courses page, you will also see a complete list of your SPSCC courses, including its publishing status. The Introduction to Canvas video demonstrates how to add and remove courses from your main dashboard. 

Missing students

Canvas students are added by SIS two weeks prior to the beginning of classes. If you don't see students in your course after this date, give us a call!

Extra Instructors

Occasionally, original instructors remain in your Canvas course after you have been added. Based on input from Program Admins and Instruction, SIS is now automatically programmed to remove instructors whose assignments have been changed. Feel free to contact us if you need changes in the instructor lineup.
