How do I enable the high contrast user interface as an observer?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I enable the high contrast user interface as an observer?

High contrast UI can also be enabled from the feature settings in your User Settings.

Note: The High Contrast UI setting does not support Institutional branding.
