Institutional Canvas Requirements
Required Canvas Presence
As of Fall 2022, CBU requires that all courses, whether face-to-face or online, must have a basic Canvas presence. The basic requirement is that all Canvas shells contain your syllabus and are published.
See Fall 2022 email from the Office of Academic Affairs.
Attendance and Grades will continue to be posted in Banner. To minimize student confusion, consider filling out your Home Page and Course Overview, so that your published shell looks complete for students. When these elements are activated before the semester begins and your course is published, students will be able to see your course on their Canvas Dashboard.
See the guide to complete these basic requirements below.
