Introduction to the Canvas Administrator

New! Accessible from the CCC Administrator

Another new staff and faculty admin configuration tool - now available for colleges who have adopted the College Adaptor (Project Glue) - is also being deployed in this release and is accessible from the new CCC Administrator system. Colleges that have adopted the Canvas LMS and the College Adapter (v.2.5) are encouraged to pilot the new admin tool for automating the synchronization of student enrollments, terms, and courses.

Using the Canvas Administrator tool, college Canvas administrators can automate course shell creation for the Canvas LMS using the College ERP/SIS term and section data. The Canvas Administrator also allows Canvas admins to schedule and automate student section enrollments so that they are synchronized between the ERP/SIS and Canvas. 

Automatic synchronization of student enrollments allows students to access their content in Canvas without delay, helping them stay on path to their educational goals. Automatically creating Canvas course shells and synchronizing section and enrollment data between the ERP/SIS and Canvas also eliminates the need for faculty to manually update their student rosters, or Canvas course details, giving them more time to focus on instruction. For more information on the Canvas-SIS Integration, see the Project Glue Public Documentation page.

The Canvas-SIS integration configured in the Canvas Administrator requires installation of the CCCTC Technology Platform's (Project Glue) College Adaptor version 2.5. For more information on installing the College Adaptor 2.5 at your college, contact Keith Franco of the CCCTC Enabling Services team:
