Canvas for Students

Pages (Wiki)

Students may edit pages only if the instructor has allowed them to do so.

  2. This is the link to the page history of the page where you can view who made edits to the page.
  3. This area shows what pages are currently published as well as the option to edit the current page if the teacher has granted editing permissions to students.
