What is the People button?

The People button in Canvas will show you all the people who have access to your course, both students and staff. Its also where you go to add staff (students are added by an automated ITS process) and to create student groups.

How do I add my staff?

To add extra staff to a course, follow the steps below:

  1. Click People.
  2. Click the + People button.
  3. Enter the email address of the staff member to be added.
  4. Select the Role and Section.
    For teachers who need access to the course to build and add content, leave both these settings at the default.
    To assign a different role, see this note about teaching roles in Canvas.
    To assign a staff member to access only specific tutorial/class group/s, see the note about using Sections in Canvas.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Click Add User.
