Canvas Roles and UBC Instructor Duties

This chart shows which Canvas roles and permissions settings are assigned to each of the UBC’s instructor roles, based on their teaching duties as identified by the Teaching Assignments & Section Management (TASM) duty mappings. To be granted the Canvas role indicated in the right-hand column, users must be assigned the duty mappings in the same row that have been marked with an ‘X’ in the chart.
