Advanced Content Authoring and Reporting - Canvas test student account can't view ACAR material in Canvas

This document outlines an existing issue where some Canvas test student accounts cannot view Pressbooks content or Storyline modules embedded in Canvas using the Advanced Content Authoring and Reporting (ACAR) solution.

    When an instructor logs into Canvas with a test student account in the form of FirstnameLastname.test and tries to load a Pressbooks or Storyline module using the ACAR solution, you will see an error instead of the module. The error will read in the format of "Canvas ID provided to LTI tool ("FirstnameLastname.test") is not a valid email address."

    Affects

    This effects instructors who requested Canvas test student accounts from Learn@UW-Madison that want to use them to test ACAR content.

    Status

    As of 7/2/2020, this issue still exists.

    Workaround

    Contact the DoIT Help Desk to request that your test student account be updated to work with the Storyline ACAR solution. The test student's login needs to be updated to be in the form of a real or fake email (e.g., FirstNameLastNameTest@wisc.edu).
