Accepting Canvas Course Invitations - UWGB Accounts

The purpose of this document is to show UWGB users how to accept externally-facing course invitations when they already have a UWGB account
Non-credit Canvas courses can be made available internally to our campus, and also to external users. For these courses, it's possible for UWGB students, faculty, and staff to accidentally create a second account. In order to prevent that from happening and ensure that the course appears in Canvas for the user every time they log in, they should sign in with their UWGB account.
