How do I add a subject in a Canvas for Elementary account as an admin?

You can manually add subjects in a Canvas for Elementary account in the Courses page.

If a course template has been selected in your Canvas for Elementary account, content from the selected subject will be copied into your new subject. Course copies may not include all content. For more details, please view the course import lesson. Creating a subject from a course template does not impact file quotas.

Notes:

  • Subjects added manually in Canvas are not linked back to SIS data and are not affected by SIS imports.  
  • To link a manually created subject with an SIS ID, edit the details for a course section.
  • Subjects can also be added through SIS imports. Subjects added manually in Canvas are not linked back to any SIS data (though they could be by associating an SIS ID) and are not affected by SIS imports.

In the Course Name field [1], create a name for the course.

In the Reference Code field [2], create a reference code for the course. The reference code is also known as the short name or course code, is displayed as part of a student's course card in the Dashboard, and is referenced in the account Courses page.

In the Subaccount menu [3], select a Canvas for Elementary sub-account. You can type the name of a sub-account to search sub-accounts or select a sub-account from the drop-down menu.

Admins who manually create Canvas for Elementary subjects are automatically enrolled as an instructor in the subject. The Subaccount menu displays subaccounts in which the admin has enrollments as an instructor.

In the Enrollment Term menu [4], select the term you want to associate with the subject. You can type the name of a term to search terms or select a term from the drop-down menu. Menu options are based on the terms already created in your account.
