This article answers frequently asked questions related to offering collaborative program courses in Canvas.

- BSN@Home course electives
- UWM Architecture
Who should collaborative program instructors and students contact if they need help?
Instructors and students should contact the support for their institution. All students should contact their instructor before contacting support. Students from outside the UW System should contact Canvas Support.
How are students enrolled into my collaborative program course?
Rosters from each of the UW System institutions are added to courses in Canvas. Eventually, enrollments will be updated “near-live” for all UW System institutions, where a student can gain access to a published course within minutes of registering. Some institutions already leverage this technology, while other institutions update enrollments nightly.
UW-Madison students can be invited to your course with a special link.
For more information, see: Canvas Access - How do I enroll UW System for-credit students into my course?
Can I export grades from Canvas to the student information system of my institution? (PAWS, accessSPoint, TitanWeb, etc.)
Unfortunately, grade pass back to SIS does not work with cross-institution courses.
Can I use videos from My Media/Kaltura in my collaborative program courses?
Yes. Kaltura videos are associated with an instructor's account.
Can I use Office 365 in my collaborative program courses?
Yes, but there are some caveats. Office 365 implementations can vary from institution to institution, which can sometimes affect the sharing of some kinds of tools and resources. Office 365 and Collaboration in Canvas should function as expected for the most part. If instructors encounter an issue, reach out to the Canvas Support office for your institution, and their program contact for further assistance.
I would like to use an external tool in my course
A number of tools are universally available to all UW System institutions. Some others will need to be added for you. Instructors should reach out to Canvas support for their home institution, and their program contact for further assistance.
