  • When users access Arc through Canvas, users are automatically given an Arc account and added to the Arc users list. However, if you need to add a specific user to Arc (usually as an admin), you should create their account through your institution's Arc site.

    When you add a user to your Arc site, the user receives an email invitation to create a password to access the Arc site.

    Note: Currently once you create a user, you cannot remove the user from the Arc account.

  • If you receive an email welcoming you to Arc, you need to verify your account by setting up a password. This password is used to access a specific Arc site separate from Canvas. When you accept the account invitation, the login page shows the URL you should use to manage and access Arc.

    Most commonly, email invitations are only sent to users who are invited to Arc as admins. Currently Arc users can only be managed by admins in the institution's Arc site.

    The password you create for your Arc site currently does not sync with your Canvas login, so for best results, create the same password for Arc that you use for Canvas. If you choose a different password, you can reset your password in your Arc site at any time using the password reset link.

    Except for the Arc site user menu, Arc sites display the same content as found in an Arc account.

  • When you are finished in your Arc site, you can log out of your account.

  • As an admin user, your user menu allows you to manage settings for your institution's Arc account. Currently, admin settings can only be managed in your institution's Arc site outside of Canvas.

    How do I view Discussions as a student?

    The Discussion Index page allows you to view all the discussions within a course.

    Note: Your instructor may choose to hide the Discussions link in Course Navigation. If the Discussions link is not available, you can still access Discussions through other areas of Canvas.

    Note: If you cannot view the ePortfolio link in your User Account, your institution has disabled this feature.
