Notes created by users in a Canvas course who have the role of Teacher, Principal Instructor, or Course Coordinator will be seen by students as "Instructor Notes" in Unizin Engage.
All other Canvas roles - including TAs - are seen as students in Engage. Once someone enters Engage for a course their role is set for that course. For example if a TA has already had the “TA” Canvas role and entered Engage, you can’t later change them to an “Auxiliary Instructor” to have their notes show up as “instructor notes”.
- Canvas roles whose annotations display as "instructor notes":
- Principal Instructor
- Auxiliary Instructor
- Course Coordinator
- All other Canvas roles do not show as "instructor notes" including:
- Supervisory Instructor
As of 12/4/18 this issue still exists.
There is currently no workaround other than to make sure a user's role in a Canvas course reflects how you want their notes to show up prior to them entering Unizin Engage.
