Canvas - Access for Non-UW Personnel (UW-Madison)
This article describes the steps for allowing someone outside of UW-Madison (e.g. Someone from industry that's helping teach a class) access to Canvas.
All access to Canvas is provided via NetID accounts. Non-UW personnel who need access to Canvas will need to obtain a NetID. The mechanism for getting a NetID for Non-UW people is "Manifest."
For One Person/Small Group of People (Less than 10)
- Gather the person(s)'s name and email that needs access to the Canvas course.
- Email this information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- NOTE: This process can take several days to be created, so allow adequate time for the NetID creation process.
For a Large Group of People (or people that will need access to extensive amounts of time)
- Please email email@example.com for assistance. Please include the following information in the email: Nature of the students who need access, the number of students, and how long access will be required.
