Canvas Photo Roster: Addition of Learner Status

Canvas Photo Roster Updates

In advance of the Fall 2020 term, a new status will appear in the List view of the Canvas Photo Roster that will indicate if an individual is enrolled in residence, or enrolled remotely, in a course in Canvas.  

This status will be updated daily in Canvas.

If a student status is temporarily changed due to quarantine, for example, the status in Canvas will NOT be updated unless this temporary change results in a request or desire to leave campus for the remainder of the term.

To find this new field, go to the Canvas Photo Roster, and select List from the Roster View. The Status column is the last column on the right.

Definitions for Enrolled in residence, and Enrolled remotely, can be found on the following resource listed on the Yale College website, with a summary chart visible below.
