Add, Move, Edit, & Delete Modules

Last updated on December 10, 2021

Modules serve as distinct sections of your course, and can be organized by unit, theme, week, or any method you choose for organization. During your course, you may find the need to rearrange, add, edit, or remove a module altogether to keep the content updated and correct.

Note: The course shell provided to you will be populated with a sample module to simplify the course building process in Canvas. We encourage you to duplicate and edit this sample module, inserting your materials as necessary.
