Links are provided for you to complete the online review of your instructor rights and responsibilities with regard to FERPA and protecting a student's data.
7) Click Activate
Note: Even though you have activated a course for Canvas, you must publish your Canvas course in order for students to see the class content.
- If your course does not appear under My Classes - Instructor, contact the Scheduling Office at 801-581-7854.
- If you do not see the UOnline Class Activation link, please complete your FERPA certification review provided by the Office of the Registrar.
