Step-by-Step Instructions 

1. Log into Course Hub at http://courses.miis.edu with your MIIS username and password.

2. On the left, under “My Semester Dashboard” click on the academic term you plan to add resources to (e.g. Spring 2016 - MIIS).

3. Next to the course you want to add a Canvas resource to, click the “Manage Resources” button. This will take you to a “Resource” page for the course.

4. Click on the “+ Add a Resource” link in the course menu. This will take you to the Resource content type management page with the following options:

    • ERES Resource
    • Link Resource
    • Canvas Resource
    • RSS Feed Resource
    • SANSSpace Resource
    • WordPress Resource

To proceed with adding a Canvas resource, click "Canvas Resource" in the list of content types.

5. Next, configure the new Canvas resource for the following settings:

Resource/Link Title (*required)

Default is set to "Canvas Site".

Who can view the link and updates? (*required)

Default is "The Class".

Connect to an existing Canvas course by ID

Default is blank.

Notes: You should leave this blank when creating a new Canvas resource. Do not attempt to link to an existing Canvas resource without help from the MIIS IT Help Desk.

Description (not required)

Default is set to empty.

6. Finally, click "Save" to proceed with adding a new Canvas resource. Be patient after clicking "Save." A web services request between Bannerweb and Canvas has been initiated and this step may take 5-20 seconds to complete. Once complete, a link to the Canvas resource will appear. Once created you can access the Canvas resource directly from the Course Hub dashboard.
