  • The Collaborations Index Page allows you to create collaborations for users in your course. You can create new collaborations, edit existing collaborations, and delete collaborations.

    If your institution allows students to create collaborations in a course, you can always view any collaboration created in the course. However, students can only view collaborations that have been shared with them.

    Note: Depending on your institution's preference, your Collaborations page may not match the images shown in this lesson. However, functionality of the page remains the same.

  • As an admin, the Account Settings tab contains multiple settings you can control and change in your Canvas account.

    Note: This lesson indicates the settings that you can manage for your entire account. Other integrations may be available with the assistance of your Customer Success Manager. For a full list of integrations available in Canvas, please view the Canvas integrations lesson.

  • Modules control the entire flow of your course and its content. As an instructor, you can add modules, add items to a module, and manage module settings. You can also reorder all modules and module items.

  • Your instructor may require you to submit a peer review of another student's discussion reply. To complete the peer review, you must review the student's discussion reply and add a comment in the comment sidebar.

    If your instructor includes a rubric, which is a pre-determined outline of how an assignment is graded, you must also assign a grade using the rubric.

    Discussion peer reviews cannot be anonymous.

    Learn how to see if have been assigned a peer review discussion.

  • You can view all your quizzes in your course on the Quizzes Index page. As an instructor, you can also add quizzes and modify quiz settings.

  • The Gradebook Individual View allows instructors to assess one student and one assignment at a time. Fully accessible to screen readers, this Gradebook view allows instructors to sort by section and assignment and contains all the same settings that are available in the default Gradebook View (the view that shows all students in a course).

    If you are not familiar with the settings and other options in the Gradebook, click the feature links throughout this lesson to learn more about how the feature works in the default view.

    Like all Gradebook tabs, Individual View is persistent. Therefore, once you switch the Gradebook to Individual View, the Gradebook will always display in Individual View until it is switched back to the default view.

    Note: If your course includes multiple graders, please note that once you open the Gradebook, all existing Gradebook data is stored in the browser until the page is refreshed. Grades are not dynamically updated with any changes made by other graders in the Gradebook or in SpeedGrader.

  • You can view all your course assignments on the Assignments page.

    Note: Your instructor may choose to hide the Assignments link in Course Navigation. If the Assignments link is not available, you can still access Assignments through other areas of Canvas.

  • 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.

  • Canvas is continually creating new features to improve your experience. The majority of improvements will be made available as part of our regular release cycle. However, some features may change the workflow for common activities in Canvas during your current term. Because we want you to be able to learn about these features at your own pace, they’ll be placed in your Account Settings as a Feature Option. Feature Options allow you to choose when you want to enable the new feature for your institution. Most institutions will pilot the feature within their institution and then enable it for the entire institution between terms.

    This lesson gives an overview of how to manage feature options for an entire account. Features can be activated on account, course, and user levels. On the course level, you can give instructors the option to implement features on a course-by-course basis. Admins and instructors have no control over user-level features.

    The majority of features will be available for you to enable at any time. However, some features will only appear after they are enabled by your Customer Success Manager. To view specific feature options available in Canvas, visit the current account features lesson.

    Please note that most Feature Options will only be optional for a short period of time. Once a Feature Option is officially released to your production environment, you'll have a few releases (depending on the feature) before the option will be enabled for all Canvas users. Therefore we encourage you to use your beta environment to learn about new Feature Options for your institution, and when the features are released to your production environment, allow them as quickly as appropriate for your institution.

    Note: Account-level features cannot be managed in Free-for-Teacher accounts.
