Allowing Students to change Canvas Passwords and Two Factor Authentication


I am the district admin for Canvas and need direction where I can enable students to change their passwords in the Canvas admin console? Also, we use LDAP integration. If a student can change their password in Canvas, will it be overwritten by the LDAP sync? 

Additionally, if this doesn't make sense, can Two Factor authentication be enabled? And where is that feature enabled?

Thank you in advance for your help.

FWIW, I don't know anything about the LDAP integration, but we use AzureAD for authentication, and rely on the security settings specified there to enforce things like MFA and password complexity for the organization.

As such, there are no Canvas passwords to be reset or synchronized as that is all handled via SSO.
