l'd like to include an overview of the course on the syllabus page (like the models Canvas provides).
Hi Janice and Welcome to the Canvas Community!
The Syllabus content area actually has two functional areas, but only one can be actively modified by you as an instructor.
The bottom half of the Syllabus area is the Course Summary, and the content in there is created automatically as you add assignments with due dates.
The top half is what used to be call the "Syllabus Description", but now seem to be called nothing; except maybe "Late for Dinner". You can learn how to edit this area at How do I edit the Syllabus description in a course? Okay, it is still called the Syllabus Description in the Guides, but not on that page in Canvas. A rose is a rose, and all that jazz.
I hope this helps,
Thanks, I think I figured it out!
