Create a Page in Canvas

Last updated on December 10, 2021

Pages within Canvas create a visually dynamic and editable place to present your lectures, videos, and content. If you currently have documents to direct students on what to do within your course, consider creating a page instead. Pages within Canvas are an ideal solution to uploading document after document for students to view.

Pages can be easily placed within modules to create an efficient and engaging interaction for students. They can also be assigned as a to-do item for students.
