This tutorial will guide you through the necessary steps to add students to your pre-existing observer account in Canvas.
Step 1: Create your Pair Code
To create a pair code, have your child login to their Canvas account and go into Settings. On the right hand side of the screen have them click on Pair with Observer.
You will then see a popup box that includes your pairing code. Copy this code down.
Step 2: Login to your Account
Now that you have the pairing code, login to your Canvas account and go to Settings in the left side menu. Then, click on Observing.
Then, you will see a box to enter your pairing code. Enter your pairing code in the box, then click on +Student. You should see your student appear just below the screenshot below. Once you do, you are all set!
