How to Activate InSpace in Canvas for Faculty

Listed below are faculty resources for activating InSpace in Canvas.

It All Starts in the Course Navigation Menu

The virtue of connecting InSpace to your Canvas course is that students who are enrolled in your seminar will automatically have access to the private and secure InSpace room associated with your course. Once students are enrolled in your Canvas course, they will have access to the InSpace room via the link which automatically appears in your Course Navigation menu to the left of your screen. Only students who are officially enrolled in the credentialed space of your Canvas course have access to this link. This creates security by permitting access only by registered students and teachers.

Follow these steps:

  1. Click “InSpace” in Course Navigation menu
  2. Click “Get Started” (this is only necessary the first time)
