How many of you use modules as the home page?

This is our school's first year using Canvas, and we're trying to get an idea as to what the best home page option for our courses might be. This year, I made a few home page templates for teachers to pick from. Next year, I'm thinking that since students go straight to modules anyway, it might be a good thing for every course to just use modules as the home page.

 

I read a post by Kona Jones in the Most Effective Homepage discussion thread, where she explained that she encourages faculty to use modules as the home page. I just wanted to see if there existed more schools who also use modules as the home page. As our school's Canvas admin, I want to get as much feedback as possible about this before I present it to our teachers.

 

How many of you use modules as the home page? For those that do, what has the experience been like for teachers and students?
