We are looking to create a shell to use for community of practice, which is subscription based. Is there a way that we can add the students and have them removed automatically after 1 year?
This feature isn't an option on the front end of Canvas. The most you could do is set the course to close and be hidden from students after a year. If you want them actually removed from Canvas automatically you'd have to write a program - outside of Canvas using the Canvas API - to automate this.
