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
