Canvas Now Provides Easy Course Access for Staff, Improved Authorization

ASTRA and Canvas logo

Canvas, the UW’s learning management system, now provides course access to non-matriculated students, guest lecturers, and others without a UW NetID, through integration with UW Groups Service. Canvas also provides the ability to assign administrative roles in the system to instructional, technology, and support staff, and those roles can now be more simply managed through ASTRA, the UW's central authorization management service. Learn how to grant authorization for Canvas in ASTRA.
