I am a teacher, have a Canvas account and use it for the courses I teach. My son's elementary school teacher is starting to use Canvas in her classroom(in the same district/domain). My question is do I need a new account to be able to pair with my child and view his courses? Or can I somehow pair my existing teacher account?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I need the workaround for me to be both a teacher in canvas and an observer for my son. I do not have the observing button!
@KristinL I got to thinking that if I didn't link to you directly you may not see my previous message about wanting the work around for teacher accounts to be observers on their own children in the same district/system. Hopefully this works as I'd love to have the work around
@scientistrunner -- unfortunately, this is not something that should be shared publically, as the solution can be used for students to observe other students. That would possibly lead to an academic integrity issue.
I hate to pile on but I would love to benefit from this workaround as well. If you could share I would really appreciate it, thank you.
Can you please send me the directions also? I don't want to have two Canvas accounts. Thank you!
If I want to separate the teacher and parent account, then do I set up a new login in Canvas with my personal email? Or do I go to settings in my Canvas account?
