I do not understand how it is possible for a student to create new courses from his dashboard. How can I disable it?
Hello Félix MARTÍNEZ...
This is a setting that one of your school's Canvas admins would have turned on for your entire school. Check out the section near the bottom of this Guide, How do I set details for an account?, called "View Who Can Create New Courses". If your Canvas admin has "Students" checked, then students can create courses at your school. I hope this helps!
Thank you very much for your quick response, Chris. The problem is that I have created my online courses through a "Free for teachers" account and I can not access that option as an administrator and I do not know who to contact to deactivate that option. What I can do?
Félix, the free for teacher account doesn’t allow people to turn this feature on/off. That’s what the paid account is for. Sorry! I would talk with your students and explain that while they can do this, they really shouldn’t and why.
Is there a reason this feature is turned on in the FFT account?
Layne, I honestly have no idea why this feature is enabled for students in the FFT account. I don't actually work for Instructure and just try to help people by answering questions in the Community. I can ask around and see if anyone has an answer!
A lot of account options are enabled for Free for Teacher accounts. Are you finding that having this option for students is causing any problems we should be aware of?
