As an instructor do I have to add students to the course or are they automatically populated?
Hi, Pamela. That depends entirely on how your institution handles Canvas course enrollments. Most likely, students will be fed in automatically from the school's Student Information System (SIS), but you should check with your school's Canvas support folks or the Enrollment/Registrar's office to confirm.
Pamela, this varies by institution. Some institutions allow faculty to register students and others do it automatically for their faculty. The best way to know for sure is to ask your Institutions Canvas administrators. I did a quick search and it looks like for Indiana University this page should provide the contact information for the different (by campus) teaching and learning centers - How do I contact the teaching and learning centers at each IUcampus? Or, you can also go into your course and click on the Help link (upper right hand corner in Canvas), "Report a Problem" (even though it's not really a problem), and ask your question there.
Hope this helps!
