Public Canvas Sites

Canvas allows for the option to make course sites public. Student data (names, assignments, grades, etc.) remains private but course materials can be publicly shared. For more detailed information on the options for making your Canvas site public, please see the Canvas Course Visibility Options guide.

As of September 17, 2016, Canvas has changed its settings terminology for course visibility. The “make this course publicly visible setting” is now called “Public.” For more information on the changes to course-visibility terminology in Canvas, please see the “Course Settings” section in the following guide.

Please note that by making your site public you are agreeing to adhere to Penn’s Policy on Acceptable Use of Electronic Resources and Penn’s Policy on Unauthorized Copying of Copyrighted Material and are taking full responsibility for this action.

For questions any questions regarding this policy or public Canvas sites, please contact
