I am switching schools and the new one doesn't don't use canvas. How can I keep access to my canvas shell with all the my lectures and announcements in it if I no longer have email access with my current school?
Hi BARRY and welcome to the Canvas Community. This is a good question. Your best option would be to contact the group at your institution who manages Canvas (IT, eLearning, etc.) to determine what their policy is regarding access to past courses when someone is no longer a student. Each institution may have different procedures set up for when or how access to Canvas is closed for former students. Other than going through and saving each item in the course individually, I am unaware of a way for someone with a student roll in the course to do this in bulk.
I hope this helps and best wishes at your new school!
Hi, BARRY KUHN and I too would like to Welcome you to the Canvas Community! Eric has given you excellent guidance on the understanding that you're a student switching schools. Another possible option is the ePub export: if the course has enabled ePub exports, follow the instructions in How do I view course content offline as an ePub file as a student?
In the event you are an instructor switching to a school that does not use Canvas (and I am truly sorry to hear that), you can preserve most, if not all, of the course content:
(1) Export your courses into an IMSCC zip file (How do I export a Canvas course?)
(2) Open a Canvas Free for Teachers account using your personal email (How do I sign up for a Canvas account as an instructor?)
(3) Import the course(s) into course shell(s) you create yourself in the Free for Teachers account (How do I import a Canvas course export package?)
This is on the assumption that your current school's policy considers you the owner of that content. It's always wise to check with the local Canvas admin first.
Good points Stefanie. Looking again, I probably misinterpreted the question!
