You can add a section to your course by editing your course Settings in Canvas. Sections help subdivide students within a course and offer section-specific options such as varied due dates for assignments, discussions, and quizzes.
Sections can also be created for students who need extra time in a course, such as if a student has an incomplete grade.
Note: Sections may be added by your institution's student information system (SIS). Some course sections may have already been created for you.
