Note: Canvas adds materials to your course every time you copy from another course. If you performed a course copy in error and would like to start over, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance resetting your shell back to its initial state.
Tip:hide unused or redundant course tabs help students navigate your site. The most commonly used course tabs are, in order: 1) Home 2) Announcements 3) Modules 4) Grades 5) People
Check links to external websites
Links to external websites (e.g.: YouTube videos, personal websites of educators, etc.) may become broken because they are maintained by entities outside Canvas at Seattle University
Please see the Canvas guide: How do I validate links in a course? These instructions will help you verify all links throughout your course to ensure they are valid. If Canvas finds broken links, it will direct you to the error so you can fix it.
Note: once a published course contains graded student submissions, the course status buttons will disappear and the course can no longer be unpublished. Please see the Unpublishing a Current Course help guide for instructions on restricting student access to a course with student submissions..
Introduce how you are using Canvas (e.g.: Modules organization or Files structure, Syllabus, Assignment submissions, Discussions, Quizzes, Calendar, etc.)
Indicate how you will communicate with students and how they should communicate with you (e.g. Announcements, Inbox)
Show students their Notification preferences (make sure they keep Announcements and Conversations (Inbox) settings on ASAP – share the Canvas guide: How do I set My Notification Preferences? with students if they are unsure)
