How do I access my course sites in Online@UT (Canvas) after receiving my UT NetID?

Tags Canvas

Different groups of people at UTK are enrolled into their Canvas course sites at different times, in different ways, and for different reasons:

FACULTY who are listed in the UTK Timetable as the Primary and Secondary Instructor of Record due to having been assigned by their departmental Banner representative will automatically be enrolled into their course sites in Canvas the following morning with a role of Instructor. Course sites in Canvas are created two months before the first day of classes each semester, at which time faculty can gain access to their assigned course sites provided their departmental Banner representative has made them Primary or Secondary Instructor of Record.

STUDENTS who are officially enrolled in for-credit courses should see them listed in MyUTK. If that is the case, those courses will also appear for students once their instructor has published the Canvas course site.

EVERYONE ELSE (auditing students, TAs, staff, faculty who are NOT the Primary Instructor of Record) must be enrolled manually into each course site in Canvas. In these instances, only the "owner" (Instructor of Record) of each course site can add such users manually, on a case-by-case basis. Instructors cannot enroll additional students into their courses.

That having been said, once you know for sure that you should have access to your course sites in Canvas, here's where you go to find them:

  1. Visit the Online@UT (Canvas) website
  2. Click on either the Online@UT (Canvas) logo or link found along the left hand side of the page
  3. In the Username: text box, type your UTK NetID
  4. In the Password: text box, type your UTK NetID password
  5. Click on the Login button
  6. Authenticate with your Duo two-factor authentication
  7. View your Dashboard to see all of your Canvas courses
