Hi, I am a newly appointed adjunct. I was just given access to my account yesterday. When I log into Canvas I don't see any courses. Is there something I need to do on Canvas to add my course, or is this something to address with my department?
Hello there, Gabrielle Winters Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thank you for posting your question. Each school that utilizes Canvas handles their instructor/student enrollments differently. While some schools let instructors enroll students in classes, other schools have an automated process that sends instructor/student enrollments from the school's SIS (Student Information System) directly to Canvas without any extra work on your part. These automatic processes are usually run on a pre-set schedule determined by the Canvas administrators at your school. I think the best option for you would be to reach out to your school's local Canvas administrator who should be able to help you get assigned to your courses in Canvas. Or, as you've indicated, if you can contact someone in your department such as your Dean, then that person would be able to contact your school's local Canvas admin on your behalf to get you access to your Canvas courses. I hope this helps, Gabrielle.
