Unable to add files or edit content in my Canvas Site

If you are unable to edit your Canvas site, it is most likely because the course is in a read-only state. Canvas sites automatically go into a read-only state several months after the conclusion of a term. Courses in this state can still be imported to the new semester's Canvas site if you wish to use and edit previous course materials.

If you need editing access to a previous semester's Canvas site - for example, to resolve a student's incomplete status - please contact the Digital Learning Team to restore temporary editing access so you can make necessary changes.
