Unable to add or import content into your course?

by | Jun 27, 2018 | Canvas tips, Course types and access

Are you unable to add or edit content in your Semester 2 course? Can’t see the Import course content button? If so, check your role in the course: navigate to People > type your name in the search field.

To add, edit or delete content in the course, you will need to be assigned as one of the following roles:

  • Teacher
  • Teacher Support
  • Course Director
  • Course Designer

If you are a Course Coordinator, you can add additional roles for yourself in the course. If you are not a Course Coordinator and you wish to have different or additional roles, contact the Course Coordinator of the course, or the relevant Course Access Authoriser.
