Course Roles & Permissions
For Yale Academic Sites, official enrollments are all managed through Yale's registration system (Banner). Course enrollment changes must be handled by the school/department registrar or by students modifying their course schedules / primary worksheets. Official enrollments cannot be removed from the Canvas site by an instructor or Canvas support.
Some schools (like the Law School) may have automated feeds for TA enrollments. All other schools / departments will need to be manually added to courses by the instructor of the course, a registrar, or a school/departmental support person with admin privileges in Canvas. The Canvas @ Yale support team will not manually enroll users into course sites.
All users must have an account in Canvas before they can be added to a course site.
Typically used for mass communication from the instructor down to students. By default, copies of the announcements will be emailed to the Yale Email account for all users in the course.
