  • You may be able to use Conversations to send a message to all users in a course, all users in a specific role, or all users in a group.

    If your recipient list contains more than 100 users, your message will automatically be sent as individual messages to each user.

    Notes:

    • Messaging all users is a course permission. If you cannot send a message to all users, your institution has restricted this feature.
    • Once your course has concluded, you cannot send a message to all users.
    • Users display in Conversations once they have an active enrollment in the course, and users cannot join a course unless it is published.
  • Conversations is split into two panels and displays messages chronologically. You can view and reply to conversations and sort them by course or inbox type. Conversations itself does not have any file size limits; however, attachments added to a conversation are included in the sender's personal files.

    Notes:

    • If you right-click or option-click on the Inbox link, you can open your Conversation Inbox in a new browser tab to keep it handy while you are doing other tasks in Canvas.
    • Users display in Conversations once they have an active enrollment in the course, and users cannot join a course unless it is published.
  • In Conversations, you can send a message to one user or multiple users in a course.

    Note: Currently you cannot message users in multiple courses.

  • Student analytics show you how well a particular student is doing in your course. You can also view student analytics after your course has concluded.

    Your institution may allow students to view their own course analytics, which helps show them accurate information about their course activity and interactions. If this permission is enabled, your view and the student's view of their analytics is the same.

    Notes:

    • Viewing analytics is a course permission. If you cannot view analytics, your institution has restricted this feature.
    • Currently, analytics does not measure activity on mobile devices.
    • Analytics can also be accessed through the People page and viewing a student's user details page.
  • If you do not already have a Canvas account, you need to create an account before you can log in to Canvas.

    If you are using Canvas through your institution, you will most likely already have an account and need to accept a course invitation. Your institution will email your login information. If you do not yet have an account, you can create an account when you accept the course invitation. If your institution is using Canvas and you are having trouble with your account, contact your administrator for assistance.

    If your institution is not using Canvas, you can create your own account, also known as a free-for-teacher account, to create your own courses.

    Note: Free-for-Teacher accounts are always free. However, they do not contain all features available to institutional users of Canvas. Learn more in the Canvas Account Comparison PDF.

  • Canvas allows you to manually bulk create users, accounts, terms, courses, sections, and enrollments through the Admin interface.

    This document references the SIS Import CSV Format API page, where the majority of the CSV information is located. Each CSV file is symbiotic with another and tell Canvas how to manage all information for the account. View an SIS relationship diagram.

    Each step in this lesson provides sample CSV files with descriptions of each required and optional field. You will also find a link to download each file if you want to take a deeper look at the formatting. Download a zipped package of all sample files.

    You should practice importing data in your Canvas test environment before importing any content to your production environment.

    CSV File Format

    In order to bulk upload data into Canvas, you must create one or more CSV text files.  CSV files can be generated by many programs. Student Information Systems (SIS) often have a method for generating reports in CSV format that can be modified to fit the format Canvas requires. If you do not know how to save a file in a CSV format, please check the documentation for the program you are using to create your CSV file (e.g., Excel).

    When using the Instructure format for importing files in the SIS Import page, you may import an individual CSV text file or you may compress multiple files into a single ZIP file to bulk import data. If you are manually uploading individual files, the files must be uploaded in the order shown in this lesson.

    CSV Field Formatting

    The first row of your CSV file (header) must include the complete field name for each file. The order of the columns does not matter but having the rows ordered properly is crucial for files like the accounts.csv. When any of this data is modified in the User Interface (UI), Canvas will set the new values as "sticky." When a new basic upload is performed, the data existing in Canvas will remain "sticky" and any imported data that would attempt to update that data will be ignored. Learn more about sticky fields.

    An import can override UI changes only if the proper options are selected when using the SIS Import tool.

    API Documentation

    CSV files only include a specific set of fields. Canvas contains additional values that are available through each individual API. After running the CSV files for your institution, standard practice for a majority of institutions is to upload all SIS CSV files and then use the Canvas API to update full account and course attributes. For more information, view the Canvas API documentation for Users, Accounts, Terms, Courses, Sections, Enrollments, and Groups.

    Hva er Samtaler?

    Conversations is the messaging tool used instead of email to communicate with a course, a group, an individual student, or a group of students. You can communicate with other people in your course at any time.

    Hva er samarbeid?

    Canvas leverages collaborative technology to allow multiple users to work together on the same document at the same time. Collaborative documents are saved in real-time, meaning a change made by any of its users will be immediately visible to everyone.

  • Because it's built using web standards, Canvas runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, or any other device with a modern web browser.

  • In Canvas, the Observer role can be used to enroll parents, mentors, and guests who would like to participate in a Canvas course but do not need to earn course credit. Observers have limited permissions that allow them to see what is going on in a course without interrupting the flow of daily course communication. Like students, Observers cannot view a course until it is published and the course has started.

    To learn more about the observer role, view the Parent Registration and Student Observation video.

    Observers may be able to view assignments, course events, and grades for a student in the Canvas Parent app.
