Summer 2018 timetable courses are now available in Canvas for instructors and instructional support staff.

Please note that with the release of Spring 2018 courses in Canvas, three new Instructor roles will be assigned to course instructors depending on their role assignment when the course is built in the Student Information System (SIS):
  • Principal Instructor
  • Supervisory Instructor
  • Auxiliary Instructor
These new roles are intended to replace the previous Teacher role in Canvas, although some instructors may still get enrolled into Canvas courses as Teacher if not assigned one of the above three Instructor roles when the course is built in SIS. More details about these new Instructor roles, including their respective permissions, can be found in the "Course Roles" section of this document

Fall 2018 courses in Canvas will be available on April 16.
