We are using Canvas for all course grading but not all course administration, and I'm wondering if anyone has experience with this.
Basically we want enrollment and grading to be done through Canvas, but do not necessarily want to publish the courses or have students see their grades in Canvas. What I have found is that courses need to be published in order for teachers to input grades and students need to accept the course invitation in order for us to export the grades. However, since the course administration is not happening in Canvas, it makes it weird to ask students to accept their course invitations for courses they aren't really participating in virtually.
Has anyone else found a work-around for using Canvas to collect grades from professors, but not have the courses or the grades be visible to students?
