The following guides will show you haw to "Publish" your content in a Canvas classroom, which makes that content available to your students. Once you do this for one content type, you will have it down for all content types.........
I hope this is helpful,
Hi Kris World and welcome indeed!
In case you are referring to the "eyeball w the slash" as seen in Course Navigation, you can control which links are visible to students. https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-12933-415257079
In general though, if you're not using a feature, remove it from the Course Navigation list so that students do not get distracted.
Hope the guide helps,
Cheers - Shar
