Overview


The day grades are due, all Canvas courses for that quarter go into read-only mode. They will move out of both your and your student's dashboards, but they can still be viewed by going to Courses→ All Courses. If for some reason, extended access to edit the Canvas course is needed, professors can do this themselves by editing the course end-date before the end of the course. If the course end-date has already passed, Educational Technology and Media (ETM) can create extended sections or extend the entire course.

Extending the Course for specific individuals

If students are not finished with their course work by the time grades are due, the course can be extended for that particular student. Please either call ETM at extension 2170 or create a ticket with Web Help Desk with the following information:

  • the name of the student
  • the name of the course
  • the date the extended section should end

Extending the Whole Course

Before the Term Ends

If you know that an extension is going to be necessary while the course is still open, you can extend the dates of the course yourself. This can be done by:

  1. Go to the course settings→ Course details and type in an end date that is appropriate for the extension.
  2. Make sure that the "Users can only participate in the course between these dates" option is checked.
  3. Save by selecting "Update Course Details".

After the Term Ends

If students do not need extended access to a course, but you need extra time to make changes to the gradebook, etc., an extended section can be made that allows only the professor to be able to continue editing the course. Please either call ETM at extension 2170 or create a ticket with Web Help Desk with the following information:

  • the name of the course
  • the date the extended section should end
