Changes to Canvas Support and Canvas Help Menu

Changes are coming to Canvas support and the Canvas help menu. As of June 27, 2019, Canvas Chat Support and the Canvas Support Hotline — currently available through the Help menu in Canvas — will be discontinued. These additional services were made available on a temporary basis to provide extra support to students and faculty during UBC’s transition from Connect to Canvas. The Canvas Help menu will be updated to reflect these changes on June 27.

For support with Canvas, faculty members can continue to contact their Faculty’s Instructional Support Unit (UBC Vancouver), the Centre for Teaching and Learning (UBC Okanagan), and the Learning Technology Hub (available to all faculty members).
