How do I add a Non-Tufts account to a Canvas course site?
Instructors, TAs, Course Builders and Program Administrators can add non-Tufts user accounts to a Canvas course site.
DO NOT ADD A NON-TUFTS ACCOUNT TO A CANVAS SITE IF THE USER ALREADY HAS A TUFTS UNIVERSITY ACCOUNT.
Make sure the Canvas site is Published
Canvas site must be Published before non-Tufts accounts are added.
Click on the People tool
Click Add (+) People
In the Email address box, enter the user's non-Tufts email address, make sure "Email Address" radio button is selected, use the dropdown box to select the user's Role, then click "Next"
Click "Click to Add Name"
Add the user's name and click "Next"
Click "Add Users"
Canvas will send the user an email at that address containing a "Get Started" button.
When the user clicks on the "Get Started" button, a web page will open containing a "Create My Account" button
Note: New user's should always click on the "Create My Account" button and not the "I Have a Canvas Account" button.
