Training Hub: Set up a Canvas Course Site to Report Learner Completion

If you have configured a Training Hub course section to have a Canvas delivery method and it is set to Canvas Reports Completion, you will need to configure the Canvas course so that the completions are reported back to the learner's Training Hub transcript.

There are many different ways that a Canvas course could be configured, depending on how much content there is and the requirements of viewing and completing the content.

These instructions assume that there is one module that holds the training content, and the learner must complete it before they can report the completion to Training Hub.
