How do I customize a Subject Home page as an instructor?

This lesson applies to users at institutions that have enabled the Canvas for Elementary user interface.

In Canvas for Elementary, each subject may include a Home tab. The Home tab displays content designated as the Subject Home Page on the subject's Pages Index Page.

The Subject Home Page allows instructors to design the subject home page and include links, images, or rich media. Students will be able to interact with the content added to this page.

If a subject home page has not been assigned or has been removed, only announcements display on the subject's Home tab.

Note: Only published pages can be set as the Subject Home Page.
