Hi,  @coines2  (here's a slightly belated) Welcome to the Canvas Community! Text headers in modules support copy-paste of unicode symbols and emojis, and it looks really cool. Just yesterday I learned about this awesome resource :  https://emojipedia.org/  You can also find suitable emojis by searching for unicode symbol tables such as this one.

Here's an example of a beautifully simplified course home page that is easy for younger students to navigate.

This blog post has some great suggestions: Using Canvas with Pre-K 

And another resource that might prove helpful is https://community.canvaslms.com/message/124497 

Hope this helps, Ted!

 @coines2 ,

Unfortunately, the answer is no. Modules are strictly plain text based.

Actually, you can have unicode characters in module names, page names, and text headers
