Canvas accessibility admin settings

In this article, learn how to navigate to the accessibility settings, enable current and new courses, and complete a Full Sync to fix issues.

Data will show in the dashboard once course(s) are enabled.

Navigate to admin settings

If you’re a Canvas Admin, navigate to Pope Tech’s accessibility admin settings by following these steps:

  1. In Canvas’s Global Navigation, select Admin, and then the account.
  2. In the Admin Navigation Menu, select Pope Tech Accessibility.
  3. In Pope Tech’s top navigation, select Settings.

Enable courses

Changing a course from disabled to enabled means:

  • The course is scanned and continues to be scanned every time it’s updated.
  • Instructors have the Pope Tech Accessibility item in their course navigation and that course is included in their dashboards.

If the course is already enabled, enabling it again won’t do anything. The course is just scanned whenever it’s updated. If you are trying to rescan because of an issue, scroll down to Full Sync below.

Enable current courses

To enable a current course, follow these steps:

  1. Use the Filter widget to find the courses you want to enable.
  2. Select the checkmark by the course or select the checkmark above the column to select all the courses.
  3. Select Enable.

Enable all new courses

To automatically enable all new courses, select the Automatically enable new courses? checkbox in the Settings widget, and then select Save.

Full sync

Full Sync is similar to enabling a course because it also scans and syncs the course. The difference is if the course is already enabled, Full Sync still runs a scan and sync. Afterwards, the course keeps being scanned and synced when there are updates.

A Full Sync is helpful in these situations:

  • There is an error in the Latest Scan or Latest Sync columns.
  • You notice missing or incorrect data in the dashboard.

To do a Full Sync, complete these steps:

  1. Use the Filter widget to find the courses to Full Sync.
  2. Select the checkmark by the course or select the checkmark above the column to select all the courses.
  3. Select Full Sync.
