The structure of Canvas is modular, that is, your content can be organized and contained by modules.
You can use Modules to:
- Organize course content by unit, day, week, topic or Outcome
- Track student progress through a sequence of learning activities
- Create prerequisite activities that students must complete before moving on in the course
When you add a Module you can also set a prerequisite
And/or lock the module until a specific calendar date
Once you have added a Module, you can add items using the + sign
You can add any assignment you have created (this includes discussions, quizzes, etc) and also links to external websites
To add an additional level of organization to your module, Canvas provides Text Headers to break up and organize module content
Once the Text Headings have been created, they can be rearranged if needed, and graded activities or other course elements can be added
Moving and Deleting Module Items
At any point you can edit or delete a module or module items, using the Gear icon.
Modules and module items must be published before they will appear to students
