Modules within Modules

Modules within Modules

(27)
As we move toward Personalized Learning we are beginning to feel boxed in by the linear design of Course Modules.  Many teachers would like the Course Modules to look more like the Course listing in the new UI (Tiles rather than lists) AND have the functionality to have Modules within Modules.  This would allow for MANY more options for student Voice, Choice and Pacing options!

I am here from this thread to support this request. Hopefully, the feature in this thread will put an end to the strange behavior of Canvas requiring a sequential order to non-included requirements that appear below included requirements in a module.

Please add the ability to put Modules within Modules (basically nesting folders). This would make things so much more organized.

___________Module Titled “Videos”______________

___________Subfolder Titled Unit 1 Videos_____ within it I would have a page with many video links but I’d like to be able to have a drop-down list where I could see the names of all the videos

 

I think it would be “neater” to have all the videos on one page – esp because I’d like to keep them within units….But I would, also, like to be able to easily see all the video titles because sometimes a student has a problem and I want to give her the video but not have to go looking for it (I don’t want to open all the boxes to find the video I am looking for)

I know that I can create text headers, but that I can't see the pages within without actually opening the pages. My pages have multiple videos on them, and I want to easily see what all the videos are without having to open the page.

I would love to have modules within modules! I would use it to move all my modules for a quarter into one big module named "1st Quarter". Then the students' and my modules are much less cluttered!

It would be helpful to create a module that included folders to store material from different chapters.  In some way it would be great to create a module inside of a module.  For example: Module on Lectures and Student Resources.  Within that Module have a Module for each chapter that includes the materials (lecture, videos, quiz, discussion) for that chapter.  In the current status it seems like a lot of the information is provided and it can become confusing for students.

This looks beautiful can I share it on this website?

What I would like to see is the ability to have headings *outside* of the modules in the module overview. My classes have larger units (typically between four and six), with week-long modules in each unit, but with the functionality as it is, I can't make the unit titles visible at a glance outside the modules (see picture for what I mean)Screenshot 2020-12-07 202935.png

As a teacher in a virtual and hybrid world, it would be effective to be able to organize my modules in a more cohesive way.  For example, like an outline, you would have the option to subdivide and level your larger modules.

  1. MODULE SHELL:  Unit or Topic
    1. Week or Sub Topic
      1. Day 
        1. Assignments and Resource Links

 

I know you can work around this with a text header, but if modules had levels, we could link and send students directly to the part of the module they need to be in for the day.

An open source math CMS that I use has this feature and it is invaluable. 

But this is Canvas, folks. They're not going to implement something just because you've asked for it!

Silly....
