Many of our clients are using Canvas Guides to build their own training modules inside Canvas. We think this is a great idea since our product is changing so quickly. By embedding lessons in your course with iFrames, you can be sure that our most recent documentation is available to your learners. You can also link to the Guides in Modules.
Note: Some browsers such as Firefox and Chrome create security restrictions as noted in our general browsers lesson.

You can choose to override the security restriction and display the content anyway by clicking the shield icon and then choosing Disable Protection on This Page or Load unsafe script.
