Canvas at UO

Considerations

As a reminder, contacting this service is available to CAS-affiliated faculty, staff, and students.

The documentation is free for anyone to use as-is.

Where we are now…

The Canvas production server is online and running.

The new LMS is available at https://canvas.uoregon.edu and will require your DuckID and password via Shibboleth authentication.

Courses are tied to course reference numbers (CRNs) which are connected to instructors of record. Courses for the next term are typically created during the weekend following Week 5 of the prior term (e.g., Spring Term courses will be available by Winter Term beginning of Week 6).

Any issues with course shell access are best served by the Center for Media and Educational Technologies (CMET).

  • Creation and management of materials and content (assignments, modules)
  • Personal profile and course settings (including navigation toolbars for students and TAs)
