The right side column shows a course stream button, to-do list, and Coming Up list. I have the iframe for a remind.com stream showing in a page but it would look better in the right column. This brings me to the general question, how do I add anything to the right column? I don't see a way.
In case it is relevant: This is a FFT account until our district committee determines if Canvas is for our district.
lph, welcome to Canvas and the Community! There isn’t a way for an Instructor to add anything to the right column of a course page, regardless of whether you are using FFT or through your school (paid). If your school went with Canvas and wanted to add something on the right column then I believe this would be possible using some backend programming. This isn’t my area of expertise though so you would want to check further with the https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/canvas-developers?sr=search&searchId=982686b2-17ad-41b1-8126-... group in the Community.
Hope this helps!
