Sponsor Sakai@UD and Canvas@UD Guest Accounts (faculty and staff)


UD faculty and staff can sponsor external users for access to Sakai@UD or Canvas@UD.

The process involves three steps:

  1. The sponsor logs in to the Sakai and Canvas Guest Accounts Web form and provides the guest's email address.
  2. The guest receives an email explaining how to activate the account.
  3. Once the account is activated, faculty and staff can add the guest account to their sites.


Who can sponsor guest accounts?

Only full-time UD faculty and staff can sponsor guest accounts. Part-time or contractual employees do not have access to the service. If you can’t use the service, you can ask a colleague in your department to sponsor guest accounts for you.


How many guest accounts can I sponsor?

We have set the limit high enough to cover most of your needs. If you reach the limit, contact the IT Support Center.


The guest management interface for sponsors

guest management window

The interface consists of three parts:

  1. My Sponsored Guest Accounts

    This section lists all your currently sponsored guests and the services they can access. This is also where you can manage your guests.

  2. My Pending Invitations (only visible when appropriate)

    This section shows the invitations that have not yet been accepted by your guests. Invitations are valid for 30 days.

  3. Sponsor a Guest Account


When will the guest account be ready to use?

As soon as your guest has completed the registration process, the account is considered active (i.e., your guest will be able to log in). Depending on the service, additional delays or action may be required.
