Many institutions using Canvas have agreements with other institutions using Canvas under which students enrolled at either institution can take courses offered by the other. Institutions can set up "trust relationships" between their instances of Canvas so that students need only log in at one to see their courses for both. The way this is done today is somewhat cumbersome and tricky, though. We're improving the way students take courses from trusted partner schools.


User goals

Fix bugs to improve the experience of users who have course enrollments between two or more institutions with trust relationships. Allow users with enrollments from more than one trusted institution have the same Canvas experience regardless of where the course resides.


This feature was released to production Canvas on 4/4/15.
