Non-Banner Course Guidelines and User Management Responsibilities

Requests that Don't Fit in Canvas

External Facing Collaboration

Access to Canvas is solely available to users with active PirateIDs.

If non-ECU users need access to a course, you must request external accounts within the ECU Canvas support ticket. Additional licensing costs may be associated with some external accounts.

Fee-based & Continuing Education Courses

For fee-based or continuing education courses, contact Continuing and Professional Education.

Internal Professional Development

If you are a unit that has requirements to retain records and audits of employee certification or training, Cornerstone is the university’s tool for tracking employee training and professional development.

Intranet Sites/Document Storage and Sharing Repositories

Canvas is designed for academic course delivery. If document storage and sharing repository are the purpose for the course, Microsoft Teams and Office 365 are more suitable solutions.

Protected Data

Canvas is not approved for the storage of Protected Health Information or other protected information. See the Sensitive Data Storage and Transmission page for options that are approved for the storage of sensitive data.

Course Request Review and Approval

  • All requests will be reviewed by Academic Technologies-ITCS.
  • On average, turnaround time for approval and course creation is five (5) business days.

Course Retention

To be determined at a later date.

User Management Responsibilities

  • Non-curricular course instructors are responsible for adding and managing course enrollment. If you need assistance with enrollments of 300+, submit a Learning Management System Request form.
  • Course participants must have an ECU PirateID to access the course.
  • If non-ECU users need access to a course, you must request external accounts within the Non-Banner Canvas Course Request. Additional licensing costs may be associated with the course.
