I have two different course shells and I want to create an identical page such that if I update the page in one course, it automatically updates in the other course. Can this be done?

Good morning, @kmgonzales1 ...

Sure!  Do you have access to Canvas Commons in your Canvas environment?  If so, this is possible.  Create your page in your course, and then share it to Canvas Commons (picking any sharing settings that you want).  Then, once you've shared that page from Commons, import that shared page from Commons into your other course.  Any time that you need to update both pages in both courses, return to the original course, and make the change there only.  Commons should detect that an update was made to the shared resource, and you can tell Commons to update any "child" courses that it is linked to.  Here are some Guides:

  1. How do I share a resource to Commons?
  2. How do I import and view a Commons resource in Canvas?
  3. How do I update a resource I previously shared to Commons?
  4. How do I view updates to resources I previously imported from Commons?

I hope these Guides will be of help to you.  Sing out if you have any questions...thanks!  Take care, stay safe, and be well.
