  • As an instructor, you can create a new page to add to your course.

    When creating pages, you can set page permissions as to who can edit the page: instructors (teachers), instructors and students, or anyone.

  • The Course Home Page is the first view your students will see when they enter your course. For the Course Home Page, you can customize a page from your course Pages and have it display as the Course Home Page.

    If you want to change the Course Home Page to a custom page, you must first set the page as the Front Page. The Front Page is a designation that shows Canvas which page can be used for the Course Home Page. Use this page to show a welcome message, links, images, or other information for students.

    Notes:

    • Before setting the Front Page, the page must be published.
    • Once you set a Front Page, you cannot remove the Front page. However, you can change the Front Page as much as you would like, or set another page as the Front Page.
    • Before setting a Front page, the Pages link in Course Navigation will open to the Pages Index. However, once you have selected a Front Page, the Pages link will always open to the Front Page. To return to the Pages Index, click the View All Pages button.
    • The Pages Front Page can also be set to display recent course announcements.

  • The Learning Mastery Gradebook helps instructors and admins assess the outcome standards being used in Canvas courses. This gradebook helps institutions measure student learning for accreditation and better assess the needs of their students.  

    The default view in the Learning Mastery Gradebook is to view all students at the same time, but you can also view students individually using Individual View.

    Note: The Learning Mastery Gradebook is currently a course opt-in feature. To enable this gradebook, learn how to manage feature options in the course features lesson.

  • Draft State allows content in Modules to exist in an unpublished (draft) state. Unpublished modules are invisible to students.

    Modules control the entire flow of your course and its content. When you add items to a Module, please be aware that the status of the Module overrides the state of the individual module items. You may want to consider leaving all Module items in an unpublished state until you are ready to publish the entire Module.

    For instance, if you add a published Discussion to an unpublished Module, students cannot view the Discussion on the Modules page. However, they will still be able to see the Discussion in other areas of Canvas, such as the Discussions Index Page, the Syllabus, and the Calendar, but they will not be able to open or participate in the Discussion. Please be aware of these potential scenarios when adding course content to a Module.

    Modules also supports publishing or unpublishing files, in addition to setting a file as restricted. The restricted status applies to files only and can hide files from students. However, please be aware that restricted files may still be visible to students when they are added to modules. Learn more about restricting files in Canvas.

  • You can add a URL link to your modules.

    When adding an External URL to a module, the dialog box includes an option to load the URL in a new browser tab. When this option is selected, Canvas will display the page to students outside of Canvas. If the External URL is part of a module requirement, Canvas will also register the progression so that the module footer will appear and allow the student to advance to the next module item.

    When this option is not selected, the content is embedded in an iFrame for easy viewing. However, some sites have disabled embedding and require users to open the content in a new window. Users can open the link in a new window by right-clicking the link and selecting the option to view in a new window or tab.

    Note: Numerous module items may affect performance. Modules supports up to 100 module items in the student progress page.

  • You can add new or existing content items in Canvas to a module. You can also add an item to multiple modules, or multiple iterations of an item to one module.

    When you add items to a Module, please be aware that the status of the Module overrides the state of the individual module items. You may want to consider leaving all Module items in an unpublished state until you are ready to publish the entire Module. Learn more about Draft State in Modules.

    Notes:

    • When adding a restricted file type to a Module, please be aware that restricted files act as published files and may be viewable to students. Learn more about restricting files in Canvas.
    • Numerous module items may affect performance. Modules supports up to 100 module items in the student progress page.
    • If your course requires you to set usage rights for a file, you must set the usage right before you can publish the file in a module.
    Merkelapper Instructor Guide, Modules
  • Modules are used to organize course content by weeks, units, or whatever organizational structure works for your course. With modules, you are essentially creating a one-directional linear flow of what you would like your students to do. Once you create modules, you can add content items, set prerequisites, and add requirements.

  • Group sets house the different groups within a course. Before creating a new group set, you may want to view the existing group sets. You can also clone an existing group set.

    Once you have created a group set, you can manually create groups in the set or automatically create groups in the set.

    Note: The Groups page displays a limit of 50 group sets. 

    Merkelapper Groups, Instructor Guide, People
  • Canvas has two types of groups: student groups and group sets. Student groups can be created by either an instructor or a student and are self-organized by students. Group sets are groups that you create to use for graded assignments.

    Note: The Groups page displays a limit of 50 group sets.
