Link Canvas Faculty Profile

It is always a good practice to provide your name and contact information in prominent locations within a course site.  As an instructor, you should add your name and contact information directly to the course Home page. If you have already added a bio in your Canvas profile, you can link directly to your Canvas Profile page, avoiding the need to add a bio to every course.

  1. Navigate to your course.
  2. Click People.
  3. Click your name.
  4. Copy the URL.
  5. Click Home (or the location where you want the link to be) and click Edit.
  6. Highlight your name.
  7. Click the link icon and paste the URL you copied in step 4.
  8. Click Save.
  9. Using the Student View, click on your name to ensure the link works.
