Canvas Special Use Sites

Last modified 10/17/2023

Faculty and staff can request Special Use course sites for non-credit-related projects and support. These sites can only be used by Illinois State University employees and enrolled students. Other options are available for cases where users outside of Illinois State University need to participate, such as Comevo or Microsoft Teams. 

If you would like to learn more about Special Use sites and the alternatives available to you, please visit the page Canvas Special Use Sites on the Center for Integrated Professional Development website.
