As we wrap up Teacher Appreciation Week, I want to take a moment and add my voice of thanks to all of our educators. Your hard work and dedication in the classroom, whether in person or virtual, don’t go unnoticed. Your impact on the lives of our students is immeasurable and we truly appreciate all that you do. We are inspired by your passion for teaching and dedication to learning. Thank you from Instructure!

Course Home Pages

We have one last special treat for your Canvas course today. We hope it makes this week’s giveaways that much more worthwhile! These templates, and all of our giveaways, were created by @Laurie_Norris@LoraMiller, and @NicoleHiers, all members of Instructure's Instructional Design Team. You are encouraged to learn more about the entire Learning Services team by exploring their services overview or contacting your CSM.

We have laid out four course home pages for you using the graphics we created this week. Having a home page helps simplify course navigation and create a common theme for your Canvas course.

Please comment below and tell us what you love about these home pages! Also, if you have created a home page for your courses and are able and willing to share them with your fellow educators, you're encouraged to do so. You're welcome to comment and then share a link to a Canvas Commons resource. 

Elementary Home Pages
