Semester Start Tips

  • Master course shells are not live. Course content must be copied from the master shell into a live shell. 
  • If you “Reset” your course content in a live shell; the content will be erased. 
  • Review your course in Student View to ensure your course is ready to be published. 
  • Complete and publish your course at least 2 weeks prior to the start date. Once published, students will have access to view it at that time and any issues can be addressed prior to the course start. 
  • Notify students via email that their course will be in Canvas.
