Designers can manage course content and can view some identifiable student data (e.g., the People tool) and discussion posts, but cannot see or edit grades. Observers function similarly to a student, but can not view discussions or participate in any assignments; observers can, however, view assignment descriptions. This role is appropriate for ADA support. The Designer and Observer roles can be requested by a course instructor or course manager or an ELMS-Canvas administrator.
The requester will receive confirmation that the Designer or Observer request is pending in the Current Additions field. A member of the Division of Information Technology Learning Technologies staff will approve the request.
