Where are my courses? (Instructors)

If you do not see a specific course on your Canvas Dashboard, it could be one of multiple reasons.

  1. The course is for a future term and auto-generation of courses has not occurred yet. As long as you're listed as the official instructor of record on Axess, you will be added to the course automatically once the course is created. Courses for the next term are created after the add/drop period of the current term.
  2. You are not listed as the official instructor of record. If you are not listed, you will not be added automatically to the Canvas site when it is created since Canvas pulls enrollment information from Axess. Please send a message to help@stanfordcanvas.zendesk.com with your full name, course term/subject/number (e.g.,W17-PSYCH-100) and verification that you are the instructor for the course. We can then add you to the course on Canvas. However, you will also want to contact your department and ask them to list you on Axess as the instructor of record.
  3. Your dashboard has been customized and the course you are looking for is not favorited/starred. To favorite a course, follow the steps from the help guide, How do I customize my course list?.
  4. The course site was not included in auto-creation for the current term and we will need to create the course site manually (e.g., Individual Study courses). Please send a message to help@stanfordcanvas.zendesk.com with your full name and course term/subject/number (e.g.,W17-PSYCH-100).
