I want to add headings/links for assignments, discussions, modules, etc. but don't know how. I also noticed that I don't have an edit button on this page, which I assume is key to adding/deleting things. Help!
If you are new to Canvas, you must choose a home page type. I would recommend reviewing this guide:
What layout options are available in the Course Home Page?
How do I change the Course Home Page?
How do I use the Course Home Page as an instructor?
These should all give you a good start. Please feel free to visit the Canvas Guides for more assistance:
Canvas Instructor Guide
Amy, welcome to Canvas! If your home page is also the Syllabus page, you'll see the edit button at the right side of the screen. Complete instructions are in this guide: How do I edit the Syllabus description in a course?
Your question about adding links for assignments, discussions, and modules is covered in How do I insert links to course content into the Rich Content Editor using the Content Selector?
If you have additional questions about course design, please have a look at the resources available in the Instructional Designers group. If you're not already a member of that group, joining is just a few clicks away.
