How can I find networks on Canvas Student ePortfolios?

Networks are exclusive showcases for approved members within a specific university or school. Networks are a great place for you to make new connections and gain recognition for your projects. Please note that when you request to join a network the network administrator will need to approve your request.

If your institution's network has enabled SSO authentication with your institution, you may be able to join the network using your institution authentication credentials.
