CANVAS FYI’S
if you are having problems
check this
FYI list before contacting Help Desk
Why is my role listed as Observer in one or more of my courses in Canvas?
The student has not successfully completed the Canvas Orientation for Online
courses (CANV0109). For more information on CANV0109, go to the NCTC
homepage, click the eCampus dropdown list, then click Canvas Orientation.
Why can’t I type in my course discussion forum, send a message, or take a
quiz?
When a user is assigned the Observer role they can access course content, but they
cannot interact with the course, meaning they cannot post, message, submit
assignments, take quizzes, etc., etc. Therefore, student must complete CANVAS
Orientation.
I successfully completed CANV0109, why hasn’t my role switched from
Observer to Student?
Sometimes students reach the last page in CANV0109 but do not click the Finish
Orientation button that prompts the system to switch their role. After clicking the
Finish Orientation button it normally takes around 5 minutes for the role to switch to
Student but, it can take a little longer during high traffic periods. If after an hour the
role hasn’t switched, contact the eCampus Help Desk at ecampushelpdesk.nctc.edu.
Why can’t I see all my courses in Canvas?
If it is a face-to-face (i.e., on-campus) course, then it is up to the instructor whether or
not to Publish the course in Canvas. All online and hybrid courses are published in
Canvas. If the student is taking an online or hybrid course and is unable to see their
course, please direct them to the eCampus Help Desk at ecampushelpdesk.nctc.edu
Do I have to take CANV0109?
All online and hybrid students must complete CANV0109 before they can access their
online and hybrid courses in Canvas. CANV0109 is ONLY REQUIRED FOR ONLINE
AND HYBRID STUDENTS. Students in only face-to-face courses should not enroll in
CANV0109. Those students are automatically enrolled in the Student Guide to Canvas.
Students that have already completed OLOR0109 (ANGEL Orientation) must complete
CANV0109 before course access is available. Once a student successfully completes
CANV0109, the student does not have to take it again. Online and hybrid course access
is unavailable prior to the first day of the semester, even if the student completes
CANV0109 beforehand. CANV0109 is free.
I received an error message when I landed on the congratulations page in
CANV0109, what do I do?
The student needs to login to Canvas using either Chrome or Firefox, then go to the
Congratulations page in CANV0109 and click the Finish Orientation button. Instructure,
Inc. has identified a bug with the Finish Orientation button when a user accesses the
page in either Internet Explorer or Safari. They are currently working on a patch that
should be implemented soon; however, until we announce that the patch has been
successfully implemented students need to use either Chrome or Safari to
successfully complete CANV0109.
