I have a child in high school and one in college. They both use canvas. Can I observe both on a single account?
Hello Richard Pellerin
I should advise you that because of a federal laws called FERPA, you may not be permitted to observe your college student's work in Canvas.

I attend multiple colleges. I have a different Canvas account for each school.
Access to the Assignments and Calendar info, for each school, are separated by account (firewall?).
However, I want to cross-link the calendar data w/ all imbedded links.
That way I can jump from link-to-link from school-to-school without being constrained.
(disclaimer: If you are violating any laws, I never wrote this. Also, I will disavow having ever done any of this).
Here is an alleged work around.
By using multiple browser tabs, I can open multiple accounts simultaneously.
In the first account “A” , I open one date, highlight the contents and copy it.
In the second account “B”, I double click on a date to create an event.
I then paste the contents copied from account “A” into the calendar of account “B”.
To SAVE YOUR WORK as a calendar event, CLICK the SUBMIT BUTTON.
Now, for each of the new events that you created, any of the calendar imbedded links pointing to
account “A” maybe accessed while in account “B”.
Unfortunately, each new event must be made one, by one.
Unfortunately, that makes for a lot of work if you are not judicious.
Unfortunately, you ARE transferred into the target account “A” immediately.
Fortunately, you can imbed a return link to account “B” as a calendar event.
Speed up the process by allowing the browser to save your Canvas UN and PW for each account.
Be advised, if you log out of one of your accounts, you will be prompted to log in to the account being
targeted within the linked script.
