Changes to Canvas Rescinded

On Monday, August 6, OIT made a change to the configuration of Canvas that restricted the way that user roles in the Canvas system can be managed. The change was made in the interest of protecting student records and identities, and reducing the chance of violating FERPA requirements.However, the change has had significant impact on academic units, particularly those that rely heavily on team teaching methods and those teaching courses with many sections taught by a large number of GTA’s. It has also restricted the ability to “cross list” courses.

Because of these problems, OIT is immediately rolling back this change, and will be working with Instructure, the developers of Canvas, to manage the security concerns in a less disruptive way.
