Adding People in Canvas
Add a Teaching Assistant (TA), Grader, or Designer to Your Canvas Course
Note: An instructor cannot add TAs, or Designers after the course end date. Contact CIDI for assistance.
From your Canvas course, click on People from the left-hand navigation
Then, click on the + People button
The option to add users by User ID (A#) is selected by default (Users must have a USU A number to log in to USU's instance of Canvas)
Type the A-number of the person you would like to add in the box
Select the role you want the user to have
- Designers have access to edit content or copy it to another course, but can't see the Grades page
- TAs have access to edit content and grade student submissions
Click on the Next button
Verify the user's name: If the correct name is showing, click the Add Users button
Add a Student
As of Spring 2020, if you are teaching a credit-bearing course, you do not have permission to add students to Canvas. Students can get access to your course by registering for your course in Banner.
Students Making up an Incomplete
If students are making up an incomplete, CIDI is happy to create a copy of the original class for you and add the specified student into the course copy. That will allow you to set future due dates and allow the student to submit assignments. Contact our office at (435) 797-9506.
Club or Student Organization Courses
If you are an "instructor" for a club or student organization course, you may add students on the People page of your course. Simply:
Click the + People button
Enter the student's A-number or a list of A-numbers
Choose Student from the Role drop-down menu
Click the Next button and verify student name(s)
Click Add Users
