Differentiated Pages

Differentiated Pages

Canvas should support differentiated Pages. Similar to differentiated Assignments, Pages could be set to be visible to certain groups of students. This would allow for the creation of diverging tracks or branches within a single course.


At UCLA Extension, we're currently developing a Canvas training course for new instructors. We have included two groups of instructors in one course: 1.) Online/Hybrid instructors, and 2.) Web-facilitated instructors. By necessity, we've designed our course so both groups move through the same content. However, if we had differentiated Pages, then we could tailor our content to each group's specific needs and enjoy the benefits of keeping them in the same course (discussion, collaboration, grading etc.).


There is a similar suggestion for differentiated Modules for which I have voted in support:


Module access to specific groups, sections or students

Love that they added the ability to give pages a to-do date, but being able to assign by section would be a big helper. While groups are a good option for some content, groups have additional functionality that isn't always desirable, and they create a pretty heavy setup load.

This is definitely needed. My university is using sections as a method for aggregating classes setup in lecture/recitation combinations. The students need access to the common lecture material, but need differentiation at the recitation level. We need this!

What is the status of this feature?  It seems like it's been in demand for quite some time now.  As a high school teacher who teaches multiple sections of the same course on a block schedule, it's necessary to be able to assign pages to different dates (just like we can with assignments & discussions).

Would love an update from someone on Canvas Tech support!

I'm glad to see this topic is still alive!  It's clear there is a need for this feature.  Can we get an update?  Thank you so much!
