*L3 stands for "Lifelong Learning LMS"
1. Either issues the learner a UW-Madison NetID or verifies that the learner's existing NetID is ready to be used.2. Adds this learner to the appropriate course-site roster(s) in the campus LMS.3. Directs the learner to the campus LMS to begin accessing the course website(s).
a. You may not need a registration system if you will always be manually uploading your lists (spreadsheets) of participants who need Canvas access, or manually adding single participants who need Canvas access.
3. Contact CSIS support at firstname.lastname@example.org to create a CSIS ("Continuing Studies Information System") instance for the new academic unit. Support documents for CSIS are hosted here: https://kb.wisc.edu/csis/ with the L3-specific parts described here: How to Use the LMS Spaces Tab .a. We recommend that you identify a "Canvas subaccount administrator" within your unit or School/College who can occasionally help your staff set up new Canvas courses when necessary. Note that DoIT requires an annual re-certification process for all Canvas subaccount administrators (consisting of passing an online Canvas knowledge test).
- New Canvas subaccount administrators can request that status by selecting the "Canvas Sub Admin access" form available on the "Request Forms" menu on this page: https://learnuw.wisc.edu/
- It may be simpler to delay this request until you have made it to step 4 below, in case your Canvas subaccount will not even exist until then. (See explanation in Step 3 next)
a. In your request to CSIS support, specify:i. Names and NetIDs of staff in your unit who will be CSIS users, and which of those should have CSIS administrator privileges.ii. Names and email addresses of relevant representatives from your academic unit to add to the the email@example.com email distribution list, so that you will be contacted with any issues/news/questions in the future related to using the L3 process.b. The first time you do step #4 below, CSIS will automatically create a new Canvas "Subaccount" that contains all of your future LMS spaces (and no one else's). Therefore be sure to also specify in your request:i. The academic-unit name you want displayed in Moodle/Canvas to your staff and your learners as the folder in which all of your courses are found.ii. In Canvas the letters "L3" will be added to the beginning of your Canvas subaccount name. However, your Canvas Subaccount Administrator (or the Lifelong Learning parent Subaccount Administrator or a campus-level Canvas administrator) can manually rename that category at any point in the future.iii. A commonly used short abbreviation or acronym for your unit. DoIT may contact you for other options if a different name is needed.
