How to look at theme options on a FFT account?

Jump to solution

I'm using canvas for teaching a university class and am looking at using it at my private school. One point I'd like to see is the theming options. From some searches, It looks like Canvas has a good themeing system but it is through the admin panel which I don't see on the FFT account (https://k12.instructure.com/

I'm on the tech team have set up LMS and many other apps and webdev in the past. Definitely looking to understand the admin's side of this as well from an eval point of view. 

Thank you all.

Thank you Stefanie. that is a good note for future newcomers. I first encountered Canvas as a teacher for a dual credit college course. That meant the feature boundary was a bit unclear, likewise, the FFT accounts are helpful, but distinctly different than demo accounts for a school. Glad to say calling Canvas quickly got that started, the support is very good!     Our school is now part of the Canvas world.

@PaulAustin  I apologize that no one has responded to your question before now! As you've observed, theming options are not available to users of Free For Teachers accounts, as managing themes is an account-level admin permission. You can view thumbnails of the themes in our documentation:  How do I manage themes for an account? 

If you haven't already done so, I recommend that you request a demo through the Instructure site to learn more about available theming options.

And, if you're considering Canvas for a private school at the elementary level, check out Canvas Release: Canvas for Elementary (2021-06-19)
