How to enable Connect in your Canvas course

The information below covers the steps neccessary to set up Connect in your course.

INSTRUCTORS: Before you begin:

  • If you are using Inclusive Access, you must have made prior arrangements with the UNM Main Campus Bookstore to utilize your Connect materials.
  • This setup should be done prior to your course opening to students in Canvas, so that they have time to access the materials (work out any technical issues), and if they choose to do so, time to opt-out before the opt-out period has ended.
