Online Learning Support

These are just some links and supports all in one place to help with setting up Canvas.

A Module is like a folder where you place one unit of instruction.
Within a Module you may have Quizzes, Assignments, Pages that detail information/content, etc.

Getting Started with Canvas - Creating your first Module (or Unit)
Setting Your Homepage - Designing the First Page your students will see
Creating Quizzes - Making Quizzes and Making Quiz Banks
Locking and Unlocking Modules - How to keep students from advancing/accessing later units

More Advanced:
Creating Your Own Navigation Buttons - Creating Course Navigation buttons that link to external websites

Quick Hints/Troubleshooting:
  • Go to "Home" and click on the right menu "Student View" to see what your students are currently able to view.
  • Something not showing up for your students that you thought would be? Make sure that you clicked "Publish" on that item. In general, items will have a green checkmark if they have been published where your students can currently see them.
