Can I make sub modules, or modules within modules, or use modules like a folder system?
Hi Isaac Owen - Unfortunately not. This has come up a few times before in this Community, and my best recommendation is to vote "up" and comment on, if you wanted to, this Feature Idea: Modules within Modules . The only alternative now--from a visual perspective, at least--is to indent things and create headings within your modules.
Hope this helps a bit, Isaac, even if it's not the answer you're looking for!
Isaac, greetings! As Ken said, Canvas doesn't have the ability to layer content in the "Module" format. Yet, what I do is create a page (think of it like a "folder) in a Module and then add in all my files, links, video etc. So in this way my module doesn't look as overwhelming because I have the resources for a specific Module all contained on one page in the Module. I do this using the rich content editor on the page and adding links, files, pages, etc.
These guides explain how to do this:
Below is an example of how one of my "Resource" pages looks from Modules - it is "Week 2 Resources."
Then this is what the "Week 2 Resources" page looks like once you click on it. By setting things up this way, I don't have all of these links to resources on the Module page and it makes it easier for students to find what they need/are looking for.
Hope this helps! Kona
Nice, Kona Jones!
Thanks Kelley! I would caution to not layer too much when doing this! I normally stick with one layer or two at MOST. And, if there are two layers, then it's when I want to be able to link to all the specific resources for a given assignment, so it makes sense to keep them together and on their own page.
