How do I Create Modules?

In Canvas, there are many ways to display your content to students. One method is to create modules, which allows you to create multiple pages and guide the students through the content rather than having them go to multiple areas to receive the readings, assignments, and all information for class this week. In this guide, we will show one way to deliver your content to students.

Add a Module

1. From the Course Navigation, click “Modules”.
