The Course Navigation Menu is a series of links on the left side of your course that help you and your students access different course areas.

Depending on the structure of your course, you can choose to reorder and hide course navigation links.

The active link is highlighted with different text and background colors [1]. This highlight helps you quickly identify the feature area you are currently viewing in Canvas. Links that are hidden to students are faded in the list [2].

The Home page is part of Course Navigation and displays the Course Home Page.

By default, new courses show links leading to the index pages for the following fourteen areas:

  • Announcements
  • Assignments
  • Discussions
  • Grades
  • People
  • Pages
  • Files
  • Syllabus
  • Outcomes
  • Quizzes
  • Modules
  • Conferences
  • Collaborations
  • Settings  

 

Configured External (LTIā€©) Tools may create additional links.
