Canvas Use Policies

External Users

External users are not permitted into Weber State University's Learning Management System unless they are officially admitted to a course for accreditation purposes.

External users reviewing courses for accreditation purposes will be restricted to a limited access period and monitored by the WSU Online Canvas administrator.

Global Announcements

WSU's instance of the Canvas learning management system isn't set up for marketing products or services. Individual instructors can create course announcements for their students if there are upcoming events related to their classes. We also have a Student Resources global menu item in every course that links students to a website maintained by Student Affairs. 

We restrict global system announcements to issues related to the Canvas LMS or it's integrations. We pride ourselves in providing an ad-free experience so students can access their course content without interference.

Public Events

Public conferences and events cannot be hosted in Canvas. Reference policy on External Users for more information.
