Guest Accounts

A “guest” is any person you need to add to your course site that does not have a Virginia Tech PID.  This includes both instructors and students.  In Scholar, it was very easy to add anyone by simply adding their non-VT email address to your course sites; however, we are working with Identity Management Services to better control and register guests for Canvas, instead of it just being completely open to add anyone, anywhere to the system.

We will have a way for “guests” to be added to Canvas, but this will not be ready until December 2015.
