Canvas for Instructors


The Pages feature in Canvas allows users to create content pages that work best when used in conjunction with Modules. Instructors can create Pages to link content from different areas of the course, upload files to a page, embed videos and images, and keep content all in a central location.

Instructors can also use Pages to frame their coursework and assignments. Each page would essentially contain details of an assignment, and by including other media-rich content, such as images and embedded videos, the coursework would be more coherent, detailed, and informative. These pages could then placed within a module, organizing the coursework into weekly modules as shown below:
