Give the ATAC access to materials in your Canvas site

If you are working with the Assistive Technology and Accessibility Centers (ATAC) to assist with providing alternate media accommodations for a student with disabilities, it may be necessary to give your support specialist direct access to your Canvas site. You can add your support specialist as a designer, which will give your specialist access to the course so they can perform an accessibility review.


  1. Log into Canvas and navigate to your course site.
  2. Once in the course site, from the tools list, select People.
  3. Click the + People button. The "Add People" dialog should appear.
  4. Click the circle next to "Login ID".
  5. Enter your support specialist's user ID in the text box.
  6. From the "Role" drop-down menu, select Designer.
  7. Click Next.
  8. If the name and email values are correct, click Add Users.
  9. Click Done to complete the process.
