What course settings do I have control over? (Typical SIS integration)
As an instructor, you have multiple settings you can control and change in your Canvas course.
View Course Settings
You can view and edit the course settings by clicking the Edit Course Details button.
Edit Start and End Dates
You can edit the start and end dates of the course by selecting the Calendar icon . Select the date you wish the course to start or end by clicking on the day .
Note: In your end date, if you do not set a time, or you set the end time to midnight, a warning icon will appear notifying you that the date prior to the set end date will be the last available day in the course. For instance, if the course were set to end Dec 12, the last full available date for the course would be Dec 11.
Limit Course Availability
Click the Users can only participate in the course between these dates checkbox to limit course availability. This will override the default institution term availability dates.
Note: Selecting this checkbox will place the course in an enrolled user's Future Enrollment course section until the start date of the course. If the checkbox is not selected and the course is published before the start date, an enrolled user will be able to access the course.
