  • As an admin, you can use the Theme Editor to create custom themes for your institution. Themes are created from existing Canvas templates. Any theme applied to the account also applies to all subaccounts, though the Theme Editor can also be used to create themes for individual subaccounts. Once you have created and saved a theme, you can apply the theme to your account at any time. You can also create new themes based on previous themes. Learn how to manage saved themes.

    Theme Inheritance

    Custom branding is hosted at the account level, and by default, sub-accounts and their associated courses inherit account branding. However, you can enable sub-accounts to use the Theme Editor; any elements that are not specifically changed will still be inherited by the account level.

    User enrollments are associated at the account level and course enrollments are associated at the sub-account level. An enrollment is created when a user and a course are joined together. If a user is not enrolled in any courses, the Dashboard displays branding for the account. This algorithm also relates to pages not associated with a course including user account and settings, Calendar, and Conversations. User data is always hosted at the account level, which is why they cannot inherit sub-account branding.

    If a user is enrolled in a course in the account, the Dashboard displays the branding for the account. If a user is enrolled in a course within a sub-account, the Dashboard displays the branding for the sub-account. If a user is enrolled in courses within multiple sub-accounts, or if one of the courses is in the account, the Dashboard displays the branding for the account.

    Theme Editor Components

    For details about the Theme Editor components, please view the Canvas Theme Editor Components PDF. For help with image templates, view the Canvas Theme Editor Image Templates PDF. Logos, images, and watermarks are not visible for users who enable the High Contrast Styles feature option in user settings.

    CSS/JS Files

    Custom cascading style sheets (CSS) or JavaScript (JS) files are not required, but override files are also supported in the Theme Editor. CSS/JS file functionality must be enabled by your Customer Success Manager. Before uploading custom CSS or JS files, please be aware of the associated risks, as custom files may cause accessibility issues or conflicts with future Canvas updates. Learn more about custom CSS/JS restrictions.


    • The Theme Editor is not available for two-week trial or Free-For-Teacher accounts.
    • If you are a subaccount admin and the Themes link is not visible in Account Navigation, Themes has not been enabled for sub-accounts. If the CSS/JS Upload tab is not visible, file uploads have not been enabled for sub-accounts.

  • You can add administrative users to an account in your Settings.

    When you assign a user as an admin in the top-level account, that user has essentially all privileges in any sub-account. You might consider assigning users as admins only in the sub-account they are responsible for.

    Once you add users, if the users already have a profile in Canvas, they will receive an email notifying them that they are now an admin for the account. If the users do not already have a profile, they will receive an email with a link to create a profile and access the account.


    • When adding an administrative user, you must assign the user to an account role. Before adding a user, ensure that you have created the necessary account-level role.
    • Your administrative user list includes the Conditional Release API, which is currently included in all accounts for MasteryPaths. The API user will be removed from the list in a future release.

  • Grades can serve as a communication tool between students and instructors and allow instructors to track the progress of students.

    The Gradebook stores all information about student progress in the course, measuring both letter grades and course outcomes.

  • LTI provides a framework through which an LMS (Canvas) can send some verifiable information about a user to a third party. For LTI to work, the third party needs to provide a consumer key and shared secret that Canvas can use to generate a signature to verify the authenticity of the data sent. By default most user information is anonymized, but this can be changed when the configuration is first set up.

    External Apps can be configured on the account or course level.

    Hva er ePortfolioer?

    Because ePortfolios are tied to the user Profiles and not a specific course, users can build an unlimited number of ePortfolios in which to collect and document their educational projects, submissions, experiences, and other work products. Users can keep ePortfolios private or share with other students, instructors, and/or future employers.

    In Canvas, ePortfolios remain active as long as the user is in the institution’s SIS and maintains a school login. Canvas also allows users to export ePortfolios to a zip file. ePortfolios can be set to allow private or public access.

    Hva er kunngjøringer?

    Announcements allow instructors to communicate with students about course activities and post interesting course-related topics. Announcements are designed to allow instructors to broadcast information out to an entire class. Students may be able to apply to announcements, but replies are not considered to be a conversation and do not appear in the Conversations Inbox.

    Hva er Analyser?

    Analytics evaluate individual components of a course and evaluate student performance. Analytics takes a three-pronged approach to creating substantive data for Canvas users.

    • Justification focuses on system reports and how the system is being used.
    • Intervention looks to predict at-risk students and how to meet their needs.
    • Learning focuses on learning outcomes, the effectiveness of the teaching style, and the division of time between students achieving competence and those falling behind.

    Hva er Rubrikker?

    Rubrics are a way to set up custom or Outcome-based assessment criteria for scoring.

    A Rubric is an assessment tool for communicating expectations of quality. Rubrics are typically comprised of rows and columns. Rows are used to define the various criteria being used to assess an assignment. Columns are used to define levels of performance for each criterion.
