New Canvas Course Manager Tool On Monday, April 18, 2022 'U-M Course Manager' was retired from Canvas and the new Canvas Course Manager (CCM) took its place.
There are a number of external tools (also called LTIs or apps) available that extend the functionality of Canvas. Below is a list of tools that have been installed and are available to all course sites. For tools that appear on the course navigation, you will need to enable the tool following the guide for Enabling External Apps. Additional tools may be available to course sites associated with specific units; please see your unit instructional technology support for guidance.

While permissions for each role can be modified at the sub-account level (unit/department), role names are set by Canvas and cannot be altered. As such, instructors receive the role of "Teacher" and Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs) receive the role of "TA" by default. If you wish to add an individual to your course, use the following chart to determine the most appropriate role for them. The permissions most commonly considered when adding an individual to a course are listed first.
Beginning of term information Course availability Canvas course sites for all classes are automatically made available to instructors six months before a term's start date. Course sites are updated twice daily with M-Pathways enrollment data changes. By default, students can see a published course starting 4 weeks before the start of the term. To override this setting, see Changing Course Access.
Groups Groups are like a smaller version of a Canvas course site. They're used as a collaborative tool for students working together on group projects and assignments.
Available Integrations External apps are an easy way provide additional functionality in a course. Instructors can add apps to their course in two ways: Enable U-M preconfigured external apps Add additional apps through the Canvas app store
