How do I create a Canvas course space?

Canvas provides tools for conducting quizzes/exams, distributing and collecting assignments, sharing readings, and more. To get started, visit EEE+ GrandCentral and follow the steps in our "Creating a Course Space" guide.

Please note: After completing the above, it can take up to one hour for your course space to appear in Canvas. 

How do I give my TAs access to my Canvas course space?

After your Canvas course space appears in Canvas, you can provide your teaching assistants with access. Examples of tasks that TAs can perform in Canvas include: creating assignments, entering grades, and updating your Syllabus page. To provide access for your TAs:

    1. Visit EEE+ GrandCentral My Canvas Course Spaces. You should see the Canvas course space that you recently created.
      • If you don't see it and it has been less than an hour, give it more time to show up.
    2. Click on the "Manage course space" button.
    3. Click on the "Assistants" tab found under the course space name. It should currently say "Assistants (0)".
    4. Click on "+Add Assistant".
    5. Enter the TA's UCInetID and follow the onscreen steps to complete the process. Note: It may take up to one hour before your TA's have access to your Canvas course space.

How do I make sure students can access my course space?

You will need to publish your course space to make it available to your students. When your Canvas course space is first created, your students won't be able to see it. In order to make it available, you will need to do the following:

    1. Visit https://canvas.eee.uci.edu/
    2. You should now be looking at your "Dashboard". Click on the course space that you recently created.
    3. On the right side of the screen you should see something that says "Course Status" with a red button that says "Unpublished". Click on the "Publish" button to make your course space visible to students. Note: If you're viewing Canvas on a smaller screen, the Unpublish/Publish buttons may be found at the bottom of the page, instead of on the right.

Students can access your course space their class list on EEE+ GrandCentral or directly in UCI Canvas.
