Canvas is the online Learning Management System used at GSE. Currently, the GSE Canvas instance is separate from other instances of Canvas used at the University*. All EDUC and EDCE courses use Penn GSE's Canvas.
All users must have an active PennKey to access Canvas. GSE Canvas accounts will be provisioned automatically for students, instructors and TAs enrolled in GSE Courses that have been created on Canvas. Please note that course sites are not automatically created on Canvas. Instructors should request Canvas course sites using our online form: http://www.gse.upenn.edu/gseit/canvas/course-request.
Students and student auditors are added to Canvas courses through SRS. These enrollments are updated once every 24 hours. If you discover that students are not being added properly or enrollments are missing, please contact GSE IT at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to add a student auditing your course to your Canvas site, they will need to register as auditors in Penn-In-Touch. For more information, contact the GSE Registrar, Tu-Quyen Nguyen, at email@example.com.
Instructors, Co-Instructors and TAs are also automatically enrolled in Canvas by their registration as instructors or TAs in the University's student record system. These enrollments are updated once every 24 hours. If you would like to add an instructor or TA to your course, contact the GSE Registrar, Tu-Quyen Nguyen, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individuals who are not officially enrolled in a course can be added to courses as Observers by contacting GSE IT at email@example.com. The following is a list of what an Observer role can do in Canvas:
