Canvas sites have been created and are ready to be set up! Faculty and teaching staff will find their list of Fall courses in my.harvard.edu. Faculty are asked to have their sites ready with syllabi and published for students to preview by mid-August. More information about Canvas, including tutorials and documentation, is available on our Canvas page.
By Thurs. Dec 2, spring Canvas sites will be available for faculty to edit for all scheduled spring 2022 courses. By Wed. Nov 24, course needing combined section Canvas sites must have the correct primary section selected in my.harvard.edu so that only one site is generated. If your department needs assistance locating the Primary checkbox, they can contact The Registrar’s Office at email@example.com. After that date you will need to contact Academic Technology directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to combine any course sites.
