How do I enable self-enrollment in my subject as an instructor?

This lesson applies to users at institutions that have enabled the Canvas for Elementary user interface.

If your Canvas admin has enabled self-enrollment for your institution and the subject is publicly visible, you can enable self-enrollment in your subject. Self-enrollment allows a student to enroll in a subject using a secret URL.

Note: If you cannot view the options for self-enrollment, your institution has disabled self-enrollment.
