MyCanvas Cross-listing allows section enrollments from individual courses to be combined into one course. This feature is helpful for instructors who teach several sections of the same course and only want to manage course data in one location.

We recommend only cross-listing courses with the same name. In MyCanvas, cross-listing does not create a new course shell. Instead, the students are moved from one course into the other, and the name of the destination course will not change. For example, if you crosslist the students from Aircraft Maintenance into Aircraft Systems, then both groups of students will be in Aircraft Systems and the students who have moved will no longer see Aircraft Maintenance in their course list.

Cross-listing should be done while courses are unpublished. Coursework is retained with the course, not with the section enrollments, so if a published course is cross-listed, all cross-listed enrollments will lose any associated assignment submissions and grades.
If you are not the instructor of the course being requested for crosslisting, please include the email of the instructor for notification and contact purpose.

This will be the course that holds all the Sections after Crosslisting.

***For Continuous Courses without a CRN, please use the CSV Upload option***
The section will be moved from the main course and back to its original course.  Note: If you un-cross-list a section that includes student grades, all grades will no longer be visible. If you need to retain student grades and put them in the original course, you should export the Gradebook and import it into the original course before un-cross-listing the section.
You do not need to include the Main Course CRN in the Section List.  Make sure when inputting the Courses to Cross-List into the main Course that they are typed in properly and avoid.

Global announcements allow you to contact all or specific users within an account or subaccount using one message.  Global announcements are shown from all accounts associated with a user and display in the user's Dashboard.

Visual Guidelines 
In order to provide faster access to courses for Students and Faculty alike, standards surrounding the posting of Announcements must be instituted in MyCanvas.  These standards will ensure that there is consistent messaging of approved relevant content being posted, helping to unencumber access to course material.  This methodology has been reviewed and approved by CTLI as well as Communications and Marketing. 

  • Elimination of images 
  • Single line title indicating subject of announcement 
  • Maximum of 600 characters in the announcement body (approximately 100 words)  
  • Hyperlink to the flyer/announcements hosted on either MyMohawk or (or other approved source) 

Content Guidelines 
Current recommendations regarding acceptable content are as follows:  

  • Updates for students with academically relevant information – Course/schedule changes/updates, financial deadlines, bursary deadlines  
  • Updates for faculty regarding – Course/Schedule changes/updates 
  • Emergency updates – System outages, campus closures, pandemic guidelines, etc. 
  • Library updates that would impact students 
  • School/Program Area specific announcements to users in a specific sub-account/enrollment
