There are two ways to join a class that was already imported from Canvas if you are a co-teacher.

  1. Connect your account to Canvas and have your co-teacher sync it
  2. Join the class as a co-teacher with the class code

Option 1: Join Class as Co-teacher from Canvas

To connect your account to Canvas, you need to attempt to create a Canvas assignment.  

1. Confirm you are enrolled in the same official public or private school as your co-teacher. Go to your My Account page and click Edit for the school to make sure it is not an "other" school.

2. Go to your course on Canvas.

3. Click the Assignments option on the course navigation panel.

That's all we need for your co-teacher to sync the class and import you! You can exit out of the process now. If you don't exit out of the import process, you will see an error screen until your primary teacher syncs your class.
