Outside access to Canvas

We recently discovered that faculty were allowed to invite outside parties to assist with their classes on Canvas.  While I understand doing this, there isn't a process in place to vet these individuals.  I would also think that there is a possible FERPA violation if there isn't some sort of agreement with the institution.


Does anyone have any best practices on this and/or am I way off in my thinking.


Thank you for your assistance.
