How do I Combine (Cross-list) Canvas course sites?
Instructors can Combine any of their Canvas Course sites into a single site.
Video Directions for Combining Canvas Course Sites
Go to Canvas Dashboard and decide which sites you would like to combine and which site will be the Parent site and which will be the Child site
Note: The Parent site will become the site that all users will have an account on and where all of the course content and activities will need to be located.
Any Content or Activities on the Child Site will be lost. Make sure the Child Site contains no content or activities.
Go to the Home Page of the Parent site and copy the Course ID number located in the URL address
In this example, the Course ID number of the Parent Course site is 846
Go to your Dashboard and then go to the Home page of the Child site.
Select the Sections Tab
This displays the single section in the Child site.
Click on the name of the Section
This displays the detail of the section
In the Box marked Or Enter the Course's ID, paste the Parent Course ID number
Click anywhere outside of this box
This displays the Parent Course under "Selected Course"
Click Cross-List this Section
This will combine the 2 Canvas Course Sites
Note: This process can be repeated adding another Child site to the same Parent site
Go to Dashboard
Note that the Child site is no longer displayed on your Dashboard
Note that the site now contains student accounts from both the Child and the Parent sites.
