  • If you have permission to publish your course, you can publish your course in the Course Home Page sidebar.

    You can also publish your course in the Course Setup Checklist.

    Notes:

    • Publishing a course is a course permission. If you cannot publish your course, your institution has restricted this feature.
    • Publishing your course will also send invitations to any users added to your course and allow them to access the course. However, the course invitation will not be sent until after the course start date. (The start date is commonly the term date, unless the term is being overridden by a specific course or section date in Course Settings.)

  • The first few times you create a new course in Canvas, it's a challenge to remember all of the steps required. The Course Setup Checklist exists to help you remember to cover all your bases before the course goes live.

  • Admins or instructors can start a new course in Canvas. New courses are created as course shells to host courses for their institution. Some institutions will have this option disabled and instead provide courses to faculty automatically via SIS (student information system) imports.

    Note: If you are not able to start a course as shown in these instructions, your institution has disabled this feature. Contact your Administrator for assistance.

  • You can change your Course Home Page to reflect one of five layout options: the Recent Activity Dashboard, Pages Front Page, the Course Modules, the Assignment List, or the Syllabus. Learn about Course Home Page options.

    Note: You must set a Front Page before selecting the Pages Front Page option. Additionally, only Published pages can be set as the Front Page.

    Merkelapper Course Home Page, Instructor Guide
  • If you are enrolled in a course as an instructor, the Course Home Page is the first page students see when they open the course. The Home Page also helps students understand how they can navigate through the course. You can customize the Home Page to create a specific workflow for your students.

    To help you learn how to navigate a Canvas course, this lesson uses a course that has already been populated. To learn how to build a new course, visit the create a new course shell lesson.

    Merkelapper Course Navigation, Dashboard, Instructor GS Guide, Instructor Guide
  • The Course Home Page is associated with the Home link in Course Navigation and is the first page seen for each course. Each Course Home Page can have one of five different layouts depending on your preference.

    Each Course Home Page layout also includes specific items in the sidebar, in addition to the To Do list.

    The Course Home Page defaults to the Course Activity Stream, but you can change the Course Home Page.

    Merkelapper Course Home Page, Dashboard, Instructor Guide
  • As an instructor, you can control which links appear in Course Navigation. By default, all links are enabled for all courses. Please note that links cannot be renamed.

    Links to sections that don't have any content and that students cannot create content for will automatically not be shown to students and will be faded for your view. For example, if there are no learning outcomes set for the course, you will see the faded Outcomes link, but students will not see the link at all. Configured External Apps may create additional Course Navigation links.

    Disabling a course navigation link creates the following redirects:

    • Hidden only (cannot be disabled): Discussions, Grades, and People
    • Page disabled; redirected to home page: Announcements, Assignments, Conferences, Collaborations, Files, Modules, Outcomes, Quizzes, pages, Syllabus
    • Page disabled; won't appear in navigation: Any LTI links, such as Attendance, Chat, and SCORM

    Note: Reordering and hiding Course Navigation links affects the course tabs in the Dashboard course view. Learn more about the Dashboard.

  • If you are allowed to create a canvas courses, you can copy a course and create a new course shell. New courses created through the Canvas interface are placed in the manually created courses subaccount.

    Copy content from another Canvas course when you want to use or repurpose previously created content including course settings, syllabus, assignments, modules, files, pages, discussions, quizzes, and question banks. You can also copy or adjust events and due dates. Not all content can be copied as part of a course.

    Notes:

    • Draft State settings are retained in course copies. If an assignment is unpublished in a course, the assignment will also be unpublished in the course copy.
    • Importing a course more than once may have unintended consequences. If you import content into a new course, edit the content in the new course, and later import the previous content again, the imported content will override the existing content.
    • When manually copying a course, the user who copies the course will automatically be added to the course with an instructor role.
    • If the Copy this Course button does not appear in Course Settings, this feature has been restricted by your institution. However, if you already have access to a course shell, you can copy a course through the Course Import Tool.

  • You can copy course content such as assignments, modules, pages, and discussions from previous Canvas courses into existing courses.

    This option allows you to copy content into existing courses. You may be able to copy content into a new course shell.

    Notes:

    • Draft State settings are retained in course imports. If an assignment is unpublished in a course, the assignment will also be unpublished in the content import.
    • Importing a course more than once may have unintended consequences. If you import content into a new course, edit the content in the new course, and later import the previous content again, the imported content will override the existing content.
    • Not all content can be copied as part of a course.
