  • By default, users can login in directly to Canvas using Canvas authentication. However, all Canvas users must have a Canvas account before they can log in to Canvas.

    Canvas authentication includes an option called self registration, which displays a registration banner on your account login page that allows users to create their own Canvas accounts. By default, Canvas authentication is enabled for all institutions, but self registration is disabled.

    Note that Canvas authentication can be used without self registration. For instance, some institutions want to create user accounts with a student information system (SIS) and import SIS data into Canvas but allow users to log in using the default Canvas login page. Canvas authentication also supports Single Sign On (SSO) authentication, which allows you to customize your login information, and can be used in addition to third-party authentication providers.

    Self Registration Accounts

    You can allow self registration for all user roles (students, instructors, observers) or only observer roles.

    • Student Accounts: Self registration is used with self enrollment. When users sign up as a student, a join code is required to access the course. Self enrollment creates the join code, which instructors can give to students to sign up in the course. Learn more about self enrollment options in your account.
    • Instructor Accounts: Instructors can sign up for a Canvas account through self registration if your institution does not already create instructor accounts.
    • Observer Accounts: Parents and other users who want to observe a student sign up through Canvas through the observer role.



    • You cannot delete Canvas authentication as an authentication option.
    • Canvas authentication passwords require a minimum of eight characters.
  • When creating or editing an assignment, you can assign an assignment to individual students. You can also set different due and availability dates for a student within an assignment that is assigned to the rest of the class. Availability date functionality is still available for each assignment.

    Only the student(s) specified in the assignment details can view the assignment.

    When using differentiated assignments with the Gradebook, the assignment appears as a column for all students, but grade cells are grayed out for students who have not been included in the assignment. Grades cannot be assigned for students who have not been included in the assignment, and assignments that are not assigned to a student are not factored into overall grades. 

    When Multiple Grading Periods are enabled in a course, assignments are also respected against closed grading periods.

    Note: If your course is using MasteryPaths, you do not have to manually assign assignments to individual students. Learn how to assign an assignment using MasteryPaths.

  • Grouping learning outcomes in an account allows for organization of multiple related outcomes.

  • Outcomes can be created from the account, sub-account, or course-level. You can create nested outcomes, or import State or Common Core Standards into your account, sub-account, or course.

    Note: Outcomes can be included in assignment rubrics as an easy way to assess mastery of outcomes aligned to specific assignments. When you define a learning outcome, you should also define a criterion that can be used when building assignment rubrics. Define as many rubric columns as you need, and specify a point threshold that will be used to define mastery of this outcome.

  • All Outcomes added at the account or sub-account levels are available to you as an instructor. You can find and import Account Standards, which are outcomes that have been created by your Canvas Administrator for the entire institution. You can also find State and Common Core Standards.

    You can import an individual outcome or import an entire outcome group.

  • In Canvas, Outcomes can be created for your entire course.

  • All outcomes added at the account or sub-account level will be available to courses within the account. You can find and import Account Standards, which are outcomes that have been created by you or other users with admin permissions for the entire institution. You can also find State and Common Core Standards.

    You can import an individual outcome or import an entire outcome group.

  • You can start conferences that you have created for your course.

  • The Course Navigation Menu is a series of links on the left side of your course that help you and your students access different course areas.

    Depending on the structure of your course, you can choose to reorder and hide course navigation links.

  • As an instructor, you can control which links appear in Course Navigation. By default, all links are enabled for all courses. Please note that links cannot be renamed.

    Links to sections that don't have any content and that students cannot create content for will automatically not be shown to students and will be faded for your view. For example, if there are no learning outcomes set for the course, you will see the faded Outcomes link, but students will not see the link at all. Configured External Apps may create additional Course Navigation links.

    Disabling a course navigation link creates the following redirects:

    • Hidden only (cannot be disabled): Discussions, Grades, and People
    • Page disabled; redirected to home page: Announcements, Assignments, Conferences, Collaborations, Files, Modules, Outcomes, Quizzes, pages, Syllabus
    • Page disabled; won't appear in navigation: Any LTI links, such as Attendance, Chat, and SCORM

    Note: Reordering and hiding Course Navigation links affects the course tabs in the Dashboard course view. Learn more about the Dashboard.
