How do I add students to my Canvas course?

When you request a Canvas course, you will be asked which course sections should have access to it. You can see which sections will be included by selecting Settings on the left > Sections tab.

Your course must be published for students to have access. You can prevent students from viewing a published course by editing the dates using Settings > Course Details tab, changing the starting date and checking Only instructors can participate in the course between these dates.

Can I copy content from a Canvas course from a previous semester?

Instructors can replicate all or some of the files, pages and tool content from one course to another. They must have access to both the original course and the course to which the information is being copied.
