What are Pages?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

What are Pages?

Pages store content and educational resources that are part of a course or group but don’t necessarily belong in an assignment. Pages can include text, video, and links to files and other course or group content. Pages can also be linked to other pages. They can also be used as a collaboration tool for course or group wikis where only specific users can have access. Canvas keeps the entire history of the page to account for changes over time.

Instructor View

In a course, instructors can create a new page with text, images, media, links, and/or other files [1].

The Options icon [2] allows instructors to edit the title of a page, delete a page, use it as the front page, duplicate the page, send a copy of the page to another instructor at their institution, or copy the page to one of their other courses.

The Delete button [3] allows instructors to delete selected pages.

Student View

Students can view pages in courses. However, instructors can allow students to edit and contribute to course pages. Students can always create pages in their student group.

In groups, students can view the same page layout with the name of the page, creation dates, and edit dates. They can also add new pages in a group [1]. In the Options icon [2], they can edit, delete, or use a page as the front page for a group. Students can use the Delete button [3] to delete selected pages for a group.
