Tech Tips, Tools and IT Maintenance

Canvas Tip: Canvas Access for Summer Courses
Unlike Sakai, Canvas limits student access to a course site if it is outside of a semester’s typical start and end range. If your course starts before Notre Dame’s normal summer session, you will need to manually adjust your course site’s term dates to allow student access.

Keep up to date on new hires and colleagues celebrating service anniversaries. Obituaries and memorial information may be found at In Memory. Please contact askHR at 631-5900 to submit obituary and memorial updates.
