Having problems adding content to your course?

by | Dec 18, 2018 | Canvas tips, Canvas updates, Course types and access

If you are unable to add / edit content in your course, or you cannot see the Import course content button, check your role in the course.  You can do this by navigating to People and typing your name in the search field.

In order to add, edit or delete content in the course, you 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.
